Calling all designers, letterers, illustrators – we want your art!

AIGA Colorado Springs invites you to be part of our first Design is Art event, a First Friday Art Show + Party on March 1st, 2019 at The Machine Shop.  First Friday Art Shows are typically well-promoted and attended, with food + drink provided for a fun art party experience.

We are looking for designers to contribute work to be part of the “Design is Art” show, a themed exhibit celebrating the art and skill in graphic design, as well as showcasing and promoting the talent of our local design community. As designers (and illustrators, letterers, etc.), we design for business needs, so the artistic, creative side of what we does not always get a spotlight.  Here is your spotlight!
