The Exhibition

Joe Guertin (1940-2010) was highly involved as a teacher and graphic designer in the art and design community of Portland from the early 1970's onward, serving as head of the Department of Graphic Design at the Portland School of Art (now Maine College of Art) and on the advisory committee for the Payson Building at the Portland Museum of Art.  His career led him to the award-winning graphic design firm, Chermayeff & Geismar, and to TRW Inc. where he was director of marketing and communication from 1987 until he retired in 2006.

The exhibition was curated by Professor Emeritus Stephen Halpert, a friend of Guertin, and presented photographs, drawings and designs by Guertin as well as works by the students he influenced.
