Get Out the Vote Exhibition: Opening Reception

Every four years since 2000, AIGA has engaged communication designers across the country in a nonpartisan voter mobilization campaign.

Creatives are asked to wield the power of design to motivate eligible citizens to register and vote in the 2016 election, as well as local elections to come. This campaign is a part of Design for Democracy, an AIGA initiative to increase civic participation through design. 

Join us on Saturday, September 24th at The Arizona Capitol Museum for the exhibition’s opening reception featuring posters from AIGA members, including Milton Glaser and Paula Scher. Take a walk through the exhibit on Design for Democracy and sit through a panel discussion about design and influence with local designers.
