I attended the opening party for Public Works exhibit International Designers Interpret the Bicycle and Our Public World on Thursday night. 27 international desingers and illustrators were invited to design posters interpretting the concept of "public biking" with a vision to reclaim urban areas.
The list of designers reads like the "who's who" of design and illustration including; Dana Arnett, John Bielenberg, Roz Chast, Frank Chimero, Milton Glaser, Kit Hinrichs, Maira Kalman, Michael Mabry, Geoff McFetridge, Jeremy Mende, Jennifer Morla, Jason Munn, Stefan Sagmeister, Paul Sahre, Paula Scher, Ralph Schraivogel, Jason Schulte, Michael Schwab, Skolos-Wedell, Erik Spiekermann, Jennifer Sterling, Niklaus Troxler, Rick Valicenti, Michael Vanderbyl, Frank Viva, Volume Inc., Jessica Walsh, and Henning Wagenbret.
The 40" x 60" prints were beautifully printed by ArtBrokers Inc. and lit by the amazing designer lighting from Flos. The exhibition will be on view at Flos thru October 25th. Limited edition prints on canvas can be purchased online. A few of my favorites below.
