GRAPHIC & NOVEL
A showcase of local comic book artists, visual communicators and storytellers.
Curated by Chase Alexander and Gaby Heit
AIGA Philadelphia’s May exhibit will feature local talents of diverse aesthetics whose work shares the connection to the comic book (sequential art and design) medium; be it through visual communication and storytelling, and designs that feature the characters and stories that have influenced the pop culture landscape. The exhibit opens on First Friday, May 1, and continues to May 31 with related programming throughout the month, to be announced. AIGA Philadelphia SPACE is located at 72 N. 2nd Street in Old City, Philadelphia.
In 1981, a group of Philadelphia designers formed AIGA Philadelphia, the first local chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Presently the chapter is comprised of over 600 members. AIGA Philadelphia’s purpose is both integral and complementary to the national organization: to provide the highest standards within the profession and the business community and to stimulate interest and understanding of graphic design and visual communication through lectures, exhibitions, and other activities.
