Women’s History Month is here! and throughout March, SEGD will feature stories related to the accomplishments of women within the field of experiential graphic design.
First up is “Seat at the Table,” a re-posting of a recent article featuring Dome Collective’s award-winning exhibition of the same name. Located inside Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center and extended through March 31, Seat at the Table celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and asks the question “Where are we now?” Katie Lee and Lynn Kiang (Dome Collective, M/WBE) won the SEGD 2021 Sylvia Harris Award for their innovative design of this exhibition.
Speaking of awards, SEGD has extended the deadline to submit your nominees for the 2022 Achievement Awards, honoring the people and companies who set the standard for excellence in the field of experiential design. See the updated award descriptions here and help us honor those members who exemplify excellence. New deadline is March 15, 2022.
We’re still riding a high from the 2021 SEGD Conference Experience Philadelphia and celebrating our award winners! On Day 2 of the conference, Katie Lee and Lynn Kiang (Dome Collective) received the SEGD Sylvia Harris Award for the design of Seat at the Table. This exhibition, located inside the atrium of Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, recognizes the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and asks the question “Where are we now?”
Looking down into the atrium of Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, visitors can’t help but notice a collection of seven interactive installations located on the building’s ground level. Statistical information, painted in giant typography on the floor next to each installation, highlights current gender inequities in the United States. Titled Seat at the Table, this temporary exhibition recognizes the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment while acknowledging how much more needs to be done to achieve gender equity.
