|Description||In 1856, this message was heralded by an incomparable civil rights activist named Abraham Lincoln. In an exhibition at the World_s Fair 77 years later, Annie E Oliver built a replica of Jean Baptiste Point du Sable_s cabin, while Charles Dawson painted an important rendition of _CHICAGO_ on the cover of its catalog. Point du Sable was the founder of Chicago, and Dawson was a leading African American designer in Chicago in the 1920s and _30s. The letterforms and illustrations above are based on Dawson_s Chicago. This poster was designed by Tanner Woodford of the Chicago Design Museum. ChiDM strengthens design culture and builds community by facilitating the exchange of knowledge through dynamic experiences.
