June 12–15, 2013

This annual event brings together leaders in the field of art and design for public programs addressing innovative topics in typography, design and history. Our topic this year, Signage and Street Typography, considers use of image and language in the public places, as well as the role of the artist’s hand in lettering. Join the conversation by viewing our exhibition, Word on the Street, attending our panel discussion, Chicago’s Street Typography, or taking our sign painting workshop with John Downer.
