Object of the Week: The Commemorative Inaugural Invitation Print
Celebrate and remember this special day in history with this limited edition print
You can own your piece of inaugural commemorative art to remember January 20, the day Joe Biden was sworn as the 46th President of the United States. The event also marks a milestone for women and immigrants, as Kamala Harris was also inducted as the first female of African-American and South Asian origins, to the position of Vice President of the United States.
Illustrator Lisa Congdon was commissioned by the Biden Inaugural Committee to interpret the inauguration invitation in her own spirited style.
Based in Oregon, Congdon has earned international recognition for her playful hand lettering and her vivid color palette which she often employs with geometric patterns and inspiring messages in various applications, from surface design to book illustrations. She has been commissioned by international brands such as Comme des Garçons, Crate and Barrel, and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Her feature in the book, 200 Women Who Will Change The Way You See the World, is one of many accolades that validates her contributions to art. Among these are her books, Find Your Artistic Voice: The Essential Guide to Working Your Creative Magic and Art Inc: The Essential Guide to Building Your Career as an Artist.
