Not My Type, Typefaces on Display
June 10 - August 6, 2021

Gallery Hours: Monday- Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Capacity of gallery is 10 visitors and masks are required. 

Can we define our times through a typeface? 

How do we choose the perfect vessel to communicate an idea? 

Can a typeface design bring awareness to societal injustices?

With the multitude of new type foundries and bespoke typefaces cropping up all over Instagram and design blogs, it seemed like the timing was right to ask Graphic design majors taking their first typography to choose any typeface or type designer to feature as an installation for a gallery exhibition. The result is a diverse collection of new and old, decorative and functional, revivals and remixes.

Participating artists:

Kalia Allen, Elsa Brydalski, Gwenyth Bechtel, Bri Elliott, Michelle Lee, Jon Lovisetto, Omar Ojeda, Jasmine Olayan, Dakota Portell, Genesis Rios, Marco Rodriguez, Rosie Ruiz, Rachel Tanner, Joseph Trezek, Roger Vazquez 

Curated by Sarah Faust, Associate Professor of Instruction, Design with assistance from Bri Elliott and the support of the department of Design
