"It was after a trip to Europe on which he had been impressed by the civic graphics of Zurich and other cities that John Massey conceived the idea of a planned civic graphic programme for Chicago. (...) America's first civic cultural communications programme seeks to express through graphic design the virtues and diversity of the city's cultural life." (Wallrapp 1968, p.14)
