‘Type Hike’

The National Park Service covers a lot of territory. To raise much needed funds, it sponsored a poster project asking graphic designers to depict the individual landscapes found in our national parks. The resulting 60 posters hit the road to be exhibited all across the nation and are currently showing at UofL’s Hite Art Institute. Included in the group is a poster of Lassen Volcanic National Park created by Meena Khalili, a new studio art teacher at UofL. There is also a panel discussion hosted by the Hite Art Institute and AIGA Louisville on Tuesday, Sept. 19 in Schneider Hall Galleries (6 p.m. social hour, 7 p.m. discussion). Panelists include Khalili, “Type Hike” cofounder Jim Walker and graphic designer Jenny Lee. Seating is limited; panel discussion free for UofL students and staff, $5 AIGA members, $8 nonmembers.
