AIGA Philadelphia is honored to host “Get Out The Vote” during the Democratic National Convention and throughout the month of July, in the very center of our city at the Gallery at City Hall, and at the Painted Bride in historic Old City!
This civic engagement initiative wields the power of design to motivate the American public to register and turn out to vote in the 2016 general election. This Special Exhibition will feature original, nonpartisan posters by designers from across the country coming together for the sake of the design of democracy.
AIGA will hold poster exhibits in Cleveland and Philadelphia in conjunction with the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National Convention, as well as in the State House in Arizona, and in cities across the country including Las Vegas, New York, Chicago and St. Louis. The posters will also be available for download and display free to the public at www.AIGA.org/vote. This program is presented in partnership with the League of Women Voters’ Vote 411 initiative. The two historic organizations are working together to encourage and inform American voters.
