September 17, 2020 – January 31, 2021

Protest posters and signs with graphic images stir the soul with a single image. Graphic designs have the power to distill complex issues into one essential, recognizable image that communicates across groups and borders. Internationally recognized designer and artist Luba Lukova creates images that she hopes will catalyze action and change the world.
