UIC School of Design faculty are well represented in the 2014 Summer Exhibition of the Chicago Design Museum. Starts/Speculations: Graphic Design in Chicago Past and Future runs from June 12 through September 30, 2014.
Inspired by the past century of design achievement and looking toward the future with insight and creativity, Starts/Speculations represents an anthology of work from Chicago’s graphic design legacy and a glimpse into how the tools we use to design and communicate could evolve and influence our interactions in the future. Beginning with a letter that articulates visual design standards for the 1909 Plan of Chicago by Daniel Burnham and Edward H. Bennett, the exhibition is a broad overview of the past century of graphic design in Chicago.
Glimpse into the future includes work from Assistant Professor Matt Wizinsky, UIC Design MFA alumni Renata Graw and Jeremiah Chu of Plural, Associate Professor Cheryl Towler Weese of Studio Blue.
Reflection on the past features work on loan from Emeritus Professor, John Massey; Morningstar and Professor Philip Burton; Studio/lab and Professor Marcia Lausen, and the UIC Richard J. Daley Library Special Collections Department.
