AIGA Lecture Series - Paula Scher: Works

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

63 5th avenue, U L103 University Center

An intimate conversation with Paula Scher to discuss her new book Paula Scher: Works, published by Unit Editions, and her journey as one of the most influential women in graphic design. Paula Scher is an American graphic designer, painter and art educator in design, and the first female principal at Pentagram, an award-winning design firm in NYC. Paula Scher designed the new identity system for The New School. 

Join Paula and Adrian Shaughnessy, the book’s co-editor and author, for a conversation about the complexities of designing, writing, editing and publishing a volume––in three editions––dedicated to a lifetime of work (so far) by one of the world’s leading graphic designers.

After the event, you are invited to join Paula and Adrian for a reception and book signing of Paula Scher: Works. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
