The environment, literacy, peace, and equality are just a few of the subjects that designers tackle in Drawn to Action: Posters from the AIGA Design Archives. With a touch of humor or with straightforward solemnity, the 33 posters in this exhibition demonstrate the inventive techniques designers use to provoke action.

Culled from the AIGA Design Archives at the Denver Art Museum—a collection of over 10,000 objects that represent one of the largest and finest holdings of contemporary American communication design from approximately 1980 to the present—Drawn to Action invites visitors to discover how design can be an extraordinary tool for change and to consider their own opinions on a broad range of issues.

A second rotation of new posters is on view starting in July 2014.

Drawn to Action: Posters from the AIGA Design Archives is organized by the Denver Art Museum.
