Since 1920, AIGA has annually awarded individuals with the AIGA Medal to honor their exceptional achievements, services or other contributions to the field of design and visual communication. Massachusetts-based Nancy Skolos and Thomas Wedell are recognized this year for their ongoing achievements as design practitioners and educators. The influential work of Skolos Wedell, their interdisciplinary design and photography studio, is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Skolos is Dean of Architecture + Design, while Wedell is Senior Critic in the Department of Graphic Design at the Rhode Island School of Design.
Nancy and Tom were awarded their AIGA Medals on Friday, April 21, 2017 in New York City. We’re honored to be hosting a local celebration in Boston. Join Skolos and Wedell as they describe their creative and collaborative practice in this celebratory event. Attendees are invited to a reception immediately following this public program.
