NEW HAVEN, CT.- The Yale University Art Gallery presents a special installation of images by Jane Davis Doggett, m.f.a. 1956. Jane Davis Doggett: Talking Graphics features the work of Doggett, a pioneer in the field of architectural and environmental design. She is best known for her career in creating graphic identities and wayfinding systems for massive public spaces, including cultural institutions and forty international airports.

Doggett recently invented the concept of IconoChrome™ images—“geometric designs in colors expressing philosophically profound messages” drawn from such sources as Roman proverbs and the Bible. Talking Graphics consists of these colorful designs, which have been converted to vector graphics and printed as books and on large panels for exhibition. Doggett has created a visual language to articulate proverbs, quotations, and sayings from a variety of cultures. Doggett explains, “In creating an IconoChrome, I interpret and project the essence of a written message using graphic symbols, or icons, which are structured from basic geometrics—circle, square, triangle—in interaction with color, or chrome. This is a process of translation of the meaning of the message, not with words, but visual images.”
