Posterfest 2019 Submissions

Using vintage AIDS awareness posters from the Wolfsonian collection as inspiration, we asked designers to create contemporary versions based on the new perspectives and insights gained at a design workshop in February with Florida Department of Health officials and community members directly impacted by HIV/AIDS.

These 32 posters are the PosterFest 2019 submissions from our design community in South Florida. Finalist designs were unveiled at The Wolfsonian–FIU on Miami Beach during the culminating event on April 27, 2:00–6:00 p.m.
