You may not know it, but you've almost certainly seen the work of graphic designer Jane Davis Doggett. After getting her M.F.A. at Yale in 1956, she pioneered the field of architectural and environmental graphic design, finding her own indelible niche: creating thematic graphic identity and wayfinding signage for mass public complexes, including Madison Square Garden, The Whitney Museum of American Art and 40 international airportsamong them Tampa, Baltimore-Washington, Miami, Newark, Cleveland-Hopkins and George Bush-Houston. This exhibit features Doggett's bold, colorful geometric images, complemented with Roman proverbs and Biblical passagesa means of symbolizing the message instead of illustrating it, according to the artist.
