Phoenix Design Week is fast approaching and with it the deadline for the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Arizona's call to designers. To celebrate 25 years in the Valley, AIGA Arizona will be hosting a "25-Year Legacy" exhibition, featuring the work of local designers whose contributions over the last quarter of a century illustrate the innovative milestones in Arizona's creative past.
Submissions for AIGA Arizona's "25-Year Legacy" must be turned in no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, September 26. Entry is free and interested participants are welcome to submit multiple works.
The exhibition's curators are Kathy Morgan of Morgan and Company, Caesar Chaves of the Heard Museum, and Ward Andrews of Drawbackwards. They're looking to collect a wide variety of pieces including physical artifacts, such as photos, prints, and trophies, as well as digital files and written accounts (short stories, memories, and quotes).
All submissions must consist of work created in the last 25 years and while living in Arizona. Designers are encouraged to look for the pieces that best represent the highlights or turning points of their careers.
AIGA Arizona's "25-Year Legacy" will debut on Saturday, October 18, at the Phoenix Design Week Method + Madness conference at the Phoenix Convention Center. All physical artifacts will be returned upon request and all featured works will be recorded digitally in the AIGA archive.
