EXHIBITION OVERVIEW 

Michael Graham and Marc Pekala both trained in graphic design programs and went on to careers in teaching and commercial design. Their design educations provided a foundation and language for their visual exploration. Pekala grew up in Baltimore seeing the poster art of the pop music culture and developed a love for using typographic forms to solve visual problems while studying at AU. Graham studied in Rome and became enamored with Classical art and inscriptional letter forms.
