“The exhibition of this work [layouts from the Container Corporation of America] was originally sponsored by the Art Institute of Chicago because they considered the series one of the most artistically progressive adverstising programs ever initiated by a large industrial enterprise and because of the economic opportunities [it] offered artists in such a relationship” (Marion R. Becker, modern art in advertising).
