In truly exciting news, the Metropolitan State University Gordon Parks Gallery will be exhibiting “Ten Years of Hispanic Posters by Luis Fitch of UNO Branding,” curated by Douglas Padilla. The opening will take place on October 14, 4:00-7:00PM (645 E.7th St., St. Paul, MN).
Fitch is an internationally acclaimed designer who will be busy during the upcoming Día de los Muertos celebrations, with public lectures at MCAD (Nov. 1, 6:30 PM) and again the following day at Metropolitan State University (12:00-1:00PM).

METRO Magazine named him as one of the Twin Cities top creative minds in 2009, and if you follow UNO on Facebook, you’ll know he is in high demand on the national and international speaking circuits.

“Fitch’s posters speak to both Latinos and Anglos, to young and old, to hip and square, to rural and urban. His work references and modernizes Mexican cultural history even as it communicates contemporary Minnesotan Latino community life. His art bridges the distance between the overtly commercial and the quietly nostalgic. And when Fitch strikes out in a political direction, he creates work that is both ironic and refreshingly humorous.” All well in evidence here.
