Yesterday I got to visit the Hammer Museum at UCLA to see the Graphic Design - Now in Production exhibit. Wow, what a wonderful show. The show reviews and exhibits graphic works that are pure inspiration. The show ranges from typography to new media and everything in between. Curated by Andrew Biauvelt from the Walker Art Center and the wonderful Ellen Lupton from the Cooper-Hewitt, they hit a home run in pulling together the wide range of work that we create and presenting in a compelling and informative manner.
The show runs at the Hammer until January 6, 2013 so you still have time to take it all in. Make sure you get the catalog from the show which includes articles that are sure to get you thinking.
