Making History: Black Graphic Design, Past and Future

The William O.Steinmetz ’50 Designer-in-Residence program is MICA’s most prominent annual design event, named after MICA alumnus, faculty member and trustee William Steinmetz (1927–2016). This year, MICA is honored to bring together three generations of cultural activists, including two MICA alumnae, to discuss the crucial issue of racial justice in art and design and to celebrate the achievements of Black creative professionals. In light of racial injustice felt across the country, topics this year will focus on graphic design history and why Black representation matters. Cheryl D. Miller ’74 will be joined by Maurice Cherry and Deyane Moses ’19 ’21 (Photography BFA, Curatorial Practice MFA), to discuss the legacy and future of Black graphic design.
