CIIPE remains the only international poster exhibition of its kind in the United States and one of a growing number of similar exhibitions in the world. First organized in 1979 by the Colorado State University (CSU) Department of Art’s highly regarded graphic design unit, the exhibition brings outstanding examples of international poster design to an American audience by inviting entries from distinguished poster artists around the world. In addition to the work of a selected Honor Laureate (this year, a couple, Joe Scorsone and Alice Drueding) that is highlighted, this year exhibition features nearly 150 posters by more than 70 artists from 40 countries. Each artist submits two copies of up to two posters, resulting in exhibitions approaching 200 posters. One copy of the poster is exhibited and sold, while the other copy becomes a part of the International Poster Collection in the CSU Libraries. With the variety of subjects, viewpoints, and techniques that the posters represent, both the exhibition and the collection are excellent sources of education, enlightenment, and enjoyment.
