How to Change the World (a Little) with Graphic Design

Can good design change the world? Internationally renowned designer Michael Bierut believes it can…a little. Bierut visits the Cleveland Institute of Art for a special presentation titled How to Change the World (a Little) with Graphic Design from 7 to 9 tonight. In addition to winning hundreds of awards, his work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, in Montreal. He has previously served as president of the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) from 1988 to 1990 and is president emeritus of AIGA National. Additionally, he is a senior critic in graphic design at the Yale School of Art and a lecturer in the practice of design and management at the Yale School of Management. Although the talk is free, tickets are required, and seating is limited. To reserve your seat, visit CIA’s website or Eventbrite. A reception precedes the event at 6:30 p.m. outside the Peter B. Lewis Theater, also known as the Cinematheque. (Josh Usmani)
