Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater 30th Anniversary Tour Poster and Brochures

This poster, created in 1981 for the Theater's 30th Anniversary Tour, later became the identity for the entire dance company. Rendering the founder's name as brush-stroke dancers captures the exuberance and vitality that made Ailey's work internationally famous, while the fuchsia-purple color scheme reflects the diverse cultures and backgrounds of the company's performers.
