Finally, Viktor Koen has posted images from his ambitious SVA Philanthropy & Sustainability Poster Project in Athens! He writes, “Curating the best 24 entries from the entire last academic year is never easy but thankfully, their sequence and hanging order came together organically and helped the posters interact dynamically.” The show featured students in the SVA MFA Illustration as Visual Essay program.
