Congratulations to Maurice Cherry for winning the AIGA Steven Heller Prize for Cultural Commentary for 2018!
Julie Anixter, executive director of AIGA, had this to say about Maurice’s accomplishments.
“Maurice has done something incredible, made even more so by the fact that no other design association or body has been able to pull it off,” said Julie Anixter, executive director of AIGA. “He has single-handedly brought more designers of color to the public’s attention than perhaps any other platform. He is giving testimony to the power one person can have.”
Maurice wins this year’s award along with Allison Arieff, editorial director of the Bay Area-based urban planning and policy think tank, SPUR. You can read the full press release, including comments from Steven Heller, on the AIGA website.
Both Maurice and Allison will receive the Steven Heller Prize at this year’s AIGA Awards Gala on April 20, 2018 in New York City.
Congratulations to them both!
