AIGA, the professional association for design,  hosted a successful 2017 Awards Gala  at Pier Sixty raising more than $450,000. The proceeds from the gala will benefit essential AIGA programs and initiatives such as World Studio Scholarships, Design Archives, Diversity & Inclusion, Women Lead, and Design for Good.

The event celebrated the 2017 AIGA Medalists. The AIGA Medal honors distinguished practitioners and leaders whose imagination, intelligence and skill have inspired and deepened the impact of design across business, education, society and our collective futures. The 2017 AIGA Medalists include Art Chantry, Emmett McBain, Rebeca Méndez, Mark Randall, Lance Wyman, Nancy Skolos and Thomas Wedell.
