Cantor Arts Center  Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University. We strive to make art accessible and engaging for all.

Happy Birthday, Edward Hopper! Hopper was born #onthisday in 1882.
"New York Corner" (1913) was created when the artist was 31, and is considered the first work made in his representational style. See it on view at the Cantor now.

#Artoftheweek "Ocean Park No. 94" by Richard Diebenkorn (1976) is back on view at the Cantor. Did you know Diebenkorn met Sarah Stein while he was studying @Stanford? Stein introduced Diebenkorn to Matisse's work, a long-time source of inspiration for Diebenkorn.

Thanks for the visit, and the mention @ideo! “The present dilemma of the corporation is that its need for order and system tends to inhibit its capacity to make decisions involving change. The future of the designer will depend on how well [management] can solve the problem of corporate adaptation, of [finding] a way…to achieve innovation within order, freedom within useful discipline.”—George D. Culler, 1960

An inspiring visit to @cantorarts “Creativity on the Line: Design for the Corporate World” exhibit, celebrating the mid-century modern era of design and reflecting on the complex challenges that designers are still solving to this day."
