Alumnus Jeffrey Breslow Holds Willis Tower Exhibition

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Art and Design alumnus Jeffrey Breslow will host the grand opening of his gallery in Chicago on September 19 and currently is displaying his work at an indoor and outdoor installation at Willis Tower in Chicago. Featuring his sculptures formed from granite boulders, steel, and stones, the show runs through the end of October. In an interview for the Huffington Post, Breslow singled out his education in industrial design as the impetus not only for his career as a toy designer but also for his success as an artist. His piece New Day—which weighs nearly 6,000 pounds—is located on First Street across from the I Hotel and Conference Center and honors his mentor, Edward Zagorski, who helmed the Industrial Design Program at Illinois from 1956 through 1988.
