October 24th marks the 72nd anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. Since 1948, this day has been celebrated as United Nations Day.
To commemorate this occasion, The Embassy of Argentina in Washington DC invites you to Making Hope Visual, a design exhibition presenting a selection of cross-cultural posters by the Argentine graphic designer Matías Delfino.
About the exhibit
The traveling exhibit includes United Nations posters that bring the message of the Organization to life. In communicating idea across borders through the universal language of design, these posters all address the same challenge: being equally understood by people of different cultures who speak different languages. These images work as agents of social change to improve people’s lives in every corner of the world.
