In conjunction with other graphic and interactive design MFAs, Temple Libraries Special Collections, and the Tyler administration, the Tyler History Wall materialized. Krissy's installation and material consideration of the commemorative and interactive display in the Tyler School of Art contributed to the development of the school’s narrative history. Archival photographs from over the course of eighty years highlight moments of Tyler’s alliance at Temple and within Philadelphia. Each graphic aspect speaks to the school’s history and identity and promotes community engagement and education. This is especially seen in the letters that spell out “Tyler,” which function as customizable and interchangeable designs chosen by each department so as to promote future synergies.
The interactive component of the wall is available for public viewing at tylerdesignmfa.com/tylerhistorywall.
