Grand Valley State University and Curatorial Studio presents a typography exhibition at Calder Art Center Padnos Gallery

A collection of typographer’s work from around the country emphasizing an appreciation for typography, specifically the letterform and its use in communication through the construction and deconstruction of both pre-existing and personal typefaces. Typographic style connotes perspective, emotion, authority, formality, and context. Through the construction and deconstruction of both pre-existing and personal typefaces, the viewer is forced to acknowledge style and the structural components of a diverse array of individual letterforms. This collection represents both student and professional work from across the country.

Curated by Brad Di Benedetto, David Schofield, Mike Wolf
