The 21st biennial Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition — a collection from the world’s most distinguished poster artists and designers hosted by CSU’s Department of Art and Art History — returns to CSU this fall.

This popular event allows the entire campus and Northern Colorado communities to experience firsthand the best that the poster world has to offer.

First organized in 1979 by the Department of Art and Art History’s highly regarded graphic design area, CIIPE is one of only a few international invitational poster exhibitions in the world.
