Exhibition Oppurtunities: AIGA DFW {out}spire 3d Design Show


The {out}spire series was crafted to get designers outside of their daily routines for a fresh dose of inspiration. Join us on January 19th, for a showcase of local 3-dimensional design to reignite your creative spark.

The third gallery-style event of the {out}spire series, our 3D Design Show, brings together a collection of tangible work in a casual gallery setting (we’re talking denim and canned beer). Discover design from a different perspective and meet others who share your passions.

Also, submissions for this show will be accepted until January 10, 2016. Simply send an email with an image of your 3D design work to, and we’ll finalize the rest.
