Woodbury University’s WUHO Gallery hosted an exhibition dedicated to the groundbreaking environmental graphic design of Deborah Sussman. It was the first retrospective of her early work, including projects completed while she was at the Eames Office up to the 1984 Olympics. The exhibition was curated and organized by Catherine Gudis, Barbara Bestor, Thomas Kracauer, and Shannon Starkey. From her years with the Eames Studio in the 1950s and 1960s, her partnership with Paul Prejza and the incorporation of Sussman/Prejza in 1980, to the creation of the iconic identity and “pop-up” architecture for the 1984 LA Olympics, Deborah Sussman has helped shape the visual landscape of Los Angeles and define the field of environmental graphic design.
