The 22nd biennial Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition (CIIPE) is a series of exhibitions and events featuring the world’s most distinguished poster artists and designers. Hosted by Colorado State University’s Department of Art and Art History, CIIPE is one of only a few international invitational poster exhibitions in the world. This popular event allows campus and Northern Colorado communities to experience firsthand the best the poster world has to offer.

CIIPE was co-founded in 1979 by CSU faculty and designers Phil Risbeck and John Sorbie, and Northern Colorado artist Bob Coonts. Intended to bring an international audience to the northern Colorado front range, it has gained a great deal of prestige and significance since its inception.

Every year, CSU’s Gregory Allicar Museum of Art highlights the work of a selected CIIPE honor laureate. This  year’s featured artist, Apex Lin—a Taiwanese designer—will give an artist talk at the GAMA and his work featured in the museum’s Works on Paper Gallery. Lin has gained worldwide recognition for his posters and is responsible for the visual identities of China’s biggest companies.

Additionally, there will be a retrospective exhibition of CIIPE co-founder and director emeritus Bob Coonts’ poster designs for CSU’s American West program. The American West program has focused on the history and culture of the American West for nearly 50 years.
