Symbols, Icons & Indices

April 20, 2006 through June 15, 2006

Symbols, Icons & Indices, an exhibition highlighting the Georgette and Richard Koopman Distinguished Chairs in the Visual Arts at the Hartford Art School featured three individuals with a wide range of experiences and opinions who came together to form a compelling and thought-provoking exhibition about Visual Communication Design. Rather than focusing on the more predictable, commercial application of graphic design, this exhibition addressed a shared commitment and vision exploring political, social, and cultural issues and the effect of design on society.
The 2005/2006 Koopman chair recipients were writer Akiko Busch, Canadian designer Robert L. Peters, FGDC, and New York-based designer and founder of Worldstudio Foundation, Mark Randall.

Symbols, Icons & Indices was curated by Zina Davis.
