The Show and Tell exhibit & Conversation Series

The “Show and Tell” exhibit and intimate conversation series honors the Bay Area’s prestigious AIGA Medalists, the national AIGA’s 100 Years of Design Centennial and the AIGA SF chapter. AIGA Fellow Karin Hibma Cronan curated and hosts.


When honoring the SF Bay Area’s prestigious AIGA Centennial Medalists Michael Cronan, Richard Danne, Michael Mabry and Bill Moggridge, as legendary design leaders - It’s about more than just the award-winning work.

It’s about the whole designer – how they changed the face of design, the early innovations, strokes of genius, and their ongoing relationships with each other and the community.

These past years are witness to transformations in every aspect of design. Show and Tell dives into the legacy of design to understand how we got here, and where we will be launched next. We celebrate the visionaries and the design leaders who continue to transform design and business as we enter our next one hundred years.
