San Antonio designers and art lovers can celebrate the inauguration of its very own AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts), the professional association for designers. Although Austin, Dallas, and Houston have had their chapters for some time, design professionals in San Antonio didn’t have a place to call home until very recently.

To raise money, they are hosting one of the coolest fundraisers I’ve ever heard of. Munny Maker, will take place at 6:30 p.m. CST on Saturday, August 14, 2010 at the Finesilver Building in San Antonio, and proceeds will benefit the new chapter. Designers have been tasked with creating a munny doll to be auctioned during the event, which will include hors d’oeuvres and beverages. It looks like it will shape up to be an interesting event. Tickets are $5 for AIGA members and students, $10 pre-sale, and $15 at the door. Maybe I’ll see you there. Peace.
