Wright weld sProfessor Erin Wright, has organized a poster exhibition invitational on immigration, “Posters without Borders.”Wright, who teaches graphic design in the Department of Art and Art History, conceived the idea of “Posters without Borders” with Antonio Castro and Eric Boelts while at the 12th International Poster Biennial of Mexico, a poster design conference where Castro and Boelts were presenters.
