The "Century: 100 Years of Type in Design" exhibition, on view at the AIGA National Design Center through June 18, explores the integral role of type in design over the past 100 years as part of AIGA's Centennial.

"With rare works and unique artifacts to view and experience, the Century exhibition celebrates the intersection of type and design," explained James Fooks-Bale, Monotype's creative director and co-curator of Century. "We are fortunate to have participation from some of the brightest designers, museum curators, disruptive thinkers and creative directors from museums, publishing houses and design companies around the world."

"The Century exhibition provides the opportunity to see works by some of the most distinguished members in AIGA's history, including Oswald Cooper, Herb Lubalin, William Addison Dwiggins, Bruce Rogers, Alexander Liberman, Milton Glaser and Seymour Chwast," commented Richard Grefé, AIGA executive director. "Century is a tremendous affirmation for the contribution of creative professionals in enhancing all of our experience of the printed word, while enabling the design community to look back at our roots as designers and to look forward to ever-expanding opportunities."

The "Century" exhibition is free and open to the public.
