22nd Biennial Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition (CIIPE)
The 22nd biennial Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition (CIIPE) is a collection from the world’s most distinguished poster artists and designers. Hosted by CSU’s Department of Art and Art History, CIIPE is one of only a few international invitational poster exhibitions in the world. This popular event allows campus and Northern Colorado communities to experience firsthand the best the poster world has to offer.
This year’s Honor Laureate Apex Lin, a Taiwanese designer, will give an artist talk at the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art and his work featured in the museum’s Works on Paper Gallery. Lin has gained worldwide recognition for his posters and is responsible for the visual identities of China’s biggest companies.
Additionally, there will be a retrospective exhibition of CIIPE co-founder and director emeritus Bob Coonts’ poster designs for CSU’s American West program. The American West program has focused on the history and culture of the American West for nearly 50 years.
