AIGA100 Celebration in Knoxville

AIGA 100 Years of Design











AIGA Knoxville is happy to announce the participating in the nation-wide celebration of AIGA’s 100th year in operation. Chapters from sea to shining sea will all be participating in their own, creative fashion. We at AIGA Knoxville have two events planned.

Monday, February 17th — 5:00 PM
AIGA100: The Mural Project
Remedy Coffee
Free to attend / Donation required to participate in the mural project
On the evening of Monday, February 17, 2014 AIGA Knoxville will be holding an event at the Remedy Coffee to kick off the AIGA 100 celebrations. AIGA is coordinating a large scale, modular, mural project where we will tether a multitude of canvases together, that will be unified by an over-arching “AIGA 100” design. Different people, from sponsors to students, will have the opportunity to come join us on the evening of February 17th to paint their specific piece of the mural. The overlay of AIGA 100 will be their only guidance. We will then hang this piece on the night of Curran’s speech, which falls on February 20th (see below). Following that event, we anticipate this collaborative piece will become a featured permanent installation at the Emporium on the 100 Block of Gay Street. Our thanks goes out to Suzanne Cada at The Arts and Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville, Tennessee for providing its final resting place.

If you or your company would like to donate and participate in the mural, please feel free to contact us for additional information.

Thursday, February 20th — 6:00 PM

On the evening of Thursday, February 20, 2014 AIGA Knoxville welcomes Stewart Scott-Curran. Stewart is Art Director at CNN Digital in San Francisco. Over the course of the past 20 years, Stewart has made his way from a Scottish cell phone call center in the 90’s, to across the pond, working in Atlanta at CNN corporate before branching out to the digital side in San Francisco. Stewart will speak on his journey, and how hard-work can lead to places never imagined. We welcome Stewart to the Knoxville creative community to share his wit and wisdom.
