Design + Archives

I would like to introduce you to: Design + Archives, a new monthly series that identifies interesting examples of design found here in the Archives collections.  Materials will range in content from exhibition posters and brochures, to letterhead and architectural drawings.  Examples of design, both good, bad, and mediocore, abound in the collections of the Archives.  The Smithsonian must constantly communicate with its staff, visitors, and supporters, and in doing so must be able to efficiently and effectively convey information and concepts.  This series will present without comment, samples of design that I've found visually interesting, while perusing the Archives collections.  To start off the series I would like to present the invitation to opening of one of my favorite museums, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.  I hope you enjoy the series!
