COLLECTED

A POP-UP SHOP

November 30, 2019  — January 30, 2020

The graphic design objects and ephemera featured in this pop-up has been collected over the years by our friends and fellow designers from auctions, flea markets, friends of friends, thrift store bins, and other passionate collectors. The work was created by some of our graphic design heroes who made their mark on history by using visual communication to influence culture.

Collecting isn’t an act reserved for art. Graphic design is worth archiving, celebrating, framing, flipping through, enjoying, and collecting. This show aims to inspire visitors to start their own collections; whether that collection is of one or of many.

Special thanks to Scott Lindberg, Meredith Macleod, Briar Levit, Sean Wolcott, Gretchen Krich, and Christopher Ozubko for including their collections in this pop-up.
