In 2013, Richard Kegler, co-founder and lead designer of Buffalo NY-based P22 Type Foundry, was commissioned by the Burchfield Penney to create the Charles E. Burchfield font to honor the artist. This exhibition celebrates the acquisition of the font into The Center’s collection.
The exhibition includes ephemera from the P22 Archive at The Center and various fonts it has developed over the past 20 years. The installation also includes archival objects from the Charles E. Burchfield Archives at the Burchfield Penney that were used in the development and design process. A limited edition specimen book of the type will be available in the Museum Store. Works by the following P22 staff and collaborators who are part of this exhibition include: Jimy Chambers, Carima El-Behairy, James Grieshaber, Brian Grunert, Colin Kahn, Alan Kegler, Denis Kegler, Kevin Kegler, Thomas Kegler, KC Kratt, Maria Pabico LaRotunda, David Lyttleton, Rod McKuen, Miranda Roth, Jim Rimmer, Pete Reiling and Michael Want.
