Adrienne Klein, a director of special projects at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, is curator of “Graphic Alert: AIDS Posters From Around the World” on display at the MSB Gallery in New York City. The selection of 36 posters from 24 nations is borrowed from the "AIDS Education Poster Collection" at the University of Rochester, an archive of 6,200 posters assembled by Dr. Edward Atwater, which is the largest of its kind. The works on display in "Graphic Alert" illustrate the complexity of the task for designers on a lifesaving mission.

"Graphic Alert" runs September 1 – 30 at the MSB Gallery (NYU Langone Medical Center, 550 First Avenue, New York City). For more on ths exhibit and an interview with Adrienne Klein, go to The Daily Heller.
