The Ames Bros, a design firm composed of two former Montana State University design students who have worked with some of rock ’n’ roll’s biggest names, will lecture at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, in MSU’s Reynolds Recital Hall.

Barry Ament and Coby Schultz, who form the renowned Seattle-based design firm Ames Bros, will speak at their alma mater in a lecture that is free and open to the public.

During their 25-year career, Ames Bros have worked with Pearl Jam, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Blondie, Nirvana, Blink 182, Skrillex, Collin Meloy, Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder.

Immediately following the lecture, an artist reception for the duo will be held in the College of Arts and Architecture Dean’s Gallery, located on the second floor of Cheever Hall. In honor of the lecture, the gallery features an exhibit of more than 20 Ames Bros posters that will be on display through Sept. 22. Gallery hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The Ames Bros exhibition and visiting artist lecture is sponsored by the College of Arts & Architecture and the School of Art along with support from the MSU Graphic Design program.
