Our eighteenth Standing-Room Only Lecture will have Louise Sandhaus coming all the way from Californ-EYE-A to talk about textile, industrial & interior designer Gere Kavanaugh. At 95 she’s still going and nothing escapes her purview of possibility. We’ll take a road trip through the ambitious career of this overlooked and unappreciated designer. Your eyes will pop! 

Our speaker, Louise Sandhaus, is a graphic designer and design educator. She teaches at CalArts and is the founder and director of The People’s Graphic Design Archive (about which we’ll learn more in April). In 2022 she was awarded the AIGA Medal. 


Thirty tickets are available for $10 each.

Date and Time

Standing-Room Only Lectures aim to present short talks about graphic design, typography, and collecting. The lectures are kept to about twenty minutes because—true to its name—the series takes place in our standing-room only gallery. So, wear comfortable shoes and bring a short attention span.

We will be checking ticket reservations at the door. Don’t bother printing your ticket as we can look you up by name. We will have a stand-by line at the door for this event. Five minutes before the event begins, we will open up the event to those in the stand-by line on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have reserved a ticket for this event, please note that it will guarantee your place until 6:55 pm on the day of the event.

Will this talk be recorded or available for streaming?
