Loyola Professors participate in international exhibition, Reminders
Liz Buchta and Daniela Marx collaborate on a project for the exhibition "Reminders" in Bangkok, Thailand. This invitation only exhibition will feature the work of four designers who were asked to create work that focuses on typography and positive messages. Drawing on Jesuit values that Loyola has instilled in them and their students, Buchta and Marx have chosen to create work that highlights specific virtues.
The show opens at Jamjuree Art Gallery at Cultural Center of Chulalongkorn University on August 31, 2012.
