The Huffington Post has recognized Luba Lukova as number one on their list of “15 Women Artists Who Have Left Their Mark on Modern Design.”
We were fortunate to host Luba in Utica as a part of our Easton Pribble Visiting Artist Lecture Series. Sadly our video was lost when our server crashed. Posted below is a very similar lecture from 2014 recorded in Ann Arbor.
Luba continues to teach Visual Communications I to sophomores, as well as, Senior Project for the Communications Design Department at Pratt Institute.

Regarded as one of the most distinctive image makers working today, artist, graphic designer and social activist Luba Lukova focuses on issues such as peace, censorship, immigration, ecology, hunger and corruption. Whether using an economy of line, color, and text to pinpoint essential themes of the human condition or to succinctly illustrate social commentary, her award-winning work is undeniably powerful and thought provoking. Widely exhibited nationally and internationally, she is also the author of the critically acclaimed Social Justice poster portfolio, and her new book, Graphic Guts, will be published in 2014. Lukova’s work is currently on view at New York’s Museum of Modern Art as a featured image for the newly opened exhibition “Designing Modern Women”. Most recently, her posters are on display at the Denver Art Museum and at La Fête du Graphisme in Paris
