Boulder-based artist Parisa Tashakori’s exhibition shares posters that she has designed for different events and pieces of artistic embroidery. Her work reminds us the importance of using hands-on skills for design. Tashakori also has designed an interactive station and invites visitors to play with Persian letters and enjoy the poetic visual sense of the Persian alphabet.
