The Hatton Gallery is pleased to host the 19th Colorado International Poster Exhibition (CIIPE). Each biennial year, the exhibition highlights excellence in poster design from leading and emerging graphic designers from around the globe. Approximately 100 artists from over 30 countries are featured in this exhibition, with work that promotes international understanding through outstanding design.
This year’s Honor Juror is Alejandro Magallanes of Mexico City, whose work has been shown extensively internationally. Magallanes has dedicated his work to politics and fun. He has written six children’s books varying from poetry to cartoons, and has designed and illustrated many posters and books. Magallanes believes that the image becomes most valuable – worth a 1,000 words – when it evokes emotions, making it unforgettable.
