Get Out the Vote 2008

For the 2008 election, the AIGA Get Out the Vote online gallery accepted and showcased more than 300 poster submissions as well as several video submissions via AIGA’s GOTV YouTube page. A set of 24 selected posters was printed and distributed nationally, both through chapters as well as at the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. The selected posters, comprised of 12 that AIGA commissioned and 12 others that were chosen from the online gallery by a design jury, were also exhibited in the AIGA National Design Center gallery during the few months prior to (and through) the election. An additional selection of 50 posters appeared in two concurrent digital exhibitions, at the Denver Art Museum during the Democratic National Convention, and at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis during the Republican National Convention.
