Politics aside, what makes a flag a good flag visually? That will be the question of the night as the 20th season of the Columbia Design League begins Thursday, Sept. 15 at the Columbia Museum of Art with “Good Flag, Bad Flag,” a presentation by Ted Kaye.
Kaye, a vexillologist (flag design expert) is the author of the book “Good Flag, Bad Flag” and former editor of Raven, the journal of the North American Vexillology Society. He will share insights on why some flag designs don’t work and what makes South Carolina’s own state flag such a good design.
The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited, so advance registration is recommended and available online.
The Columbia Design League is a group of Columbia Museum of Art members who share a belief that design matters in every area of modern life. Our annual seasons abound with lectures and discussions led by architects, designers, artists, and other luminaries. The Design League collaborates with academic, civic, and professional organizations to bring appealing and insightful design programs and events to the region.
