PGH365 2018 Award Winners + Selected Works

PGH365 Selected Works + Awards

Friday, April 6, 2018

This past Friday, Spirit Hall in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville played host to PGH365 2018, AIGA Pittsburgh’s annual design competition and exhibition. This year, both professionals and students from the region submitted 250 of their best print and interactive pieces to be showcased in an Opening & Exhibition. This year’s judges; Mike Joosse, Bonnie Siegler, and Frances Yllana juried a show containing some of the most exciting work from our region in the last year.

Where can I see the work? 
Missed the opening last night OR you want to take someone who missed it? No problem, we have gallery hours through Tuesday! Head over to Spirit Hall on Sunday, April 8 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. or Tuesday, April 10 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Thanks in part to our event sponsors for making the event such a success:
Lindenmeyr Munroe, Broudy Printing, Spirit Hall, and our friends at ASMP Pittsburgh.
