During the last century, AIGA (initially known as the American Institute of Graphic Arts) has grown to become the leading international communication design organization in the United States. AIGA’s commitment to “advancing design as a professional craft, strategic advantage, and vital cultural force” has made a powerful impact on our visual culture and has greatly influenced the public’s understanding of design.

This exhibition will demonstrate the evolution and impact that design has made on our country through the history of AIGA. From its beginnings in New York City to the development of 67 local chapters, AIGA continues to demonstrate the value of design to improve society and create value for individuals and businesses alike. The work featured in this exhibition was created for the organization by the industry’s greatest talents including Andy Warhol, Paul Rand, Saul Bass, Ivan Chermayeff, Alvin Lustig, Stefan Sagmeister, and Michael Vanderbyl.
