Date(s): May 19, 2016 – Oct 16, 2016
Location: New Museum Los Gatos, 106 E Main St, Los Gatos, CA, United States

Script and Scribble: The Art and History of Handwriting will examine the value of practicing traditional handwriting in a world that is increasingly concerned with abbreviated communication, and what the possible extinction of penmanship might mean. This exhibit will weave together the history of writing implements and scripts, the golden age of American penmanship, the growth in popularity of graphology and handwriting analysis.

This exhibition will include lectures, programs and interactive components that allow visitors to explore characteristics of their own handwriting, learn cursive and the art of lettering, as well as handwriting analysis.
