The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present the AIGA Knoxville exhibition "365: AIGA Annual Design Competition" in the Balcony at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville from January 8-29, 2010. An opening reception will take place on Friday, January 8, from 5:00-9:00 PM.
AIGA's suite of competitions is widely recognized as the most discerning statement on design excellence today, extending a legacy that began more than 90 years ago. Through the competitions, AIGA creates an authoritative chronicle of outstanding design solutions, each demonstrating the process of designing, the role of the designer, and the value of design. The selections in AIGA's annual competition represent the best work across all disciplines of communication design and strategy and were chosen by a distinguished jury of design peers. They become part of the AIGA Design Archives, a searchable visual database of exemplary design. They are also exhibited at the AIGA National Design Center in New York and offered as a traveling exhibition for display across the country. The physical artifacts comprise the AIGA Design Archives at the Denver Art Museum.
AIGA Knoxville has worked with its national board to better the local design community in East Tennessee. AIGA strives to gain validation as a strong design resource by hosting events including lectures, program workshops, and social events, all benefiting students and professionals alike.
