Dana Arnett
Founding Partner and Vice Chairman
VSA Partners


In his poem "Chicago," Pulitzer Prize winner Carl Sandburg depicts the Windy City as a bold and dominant oasis in an otherwise quiet Midwest. Chicago is a place of hard work, big dreams, broad shoulders, and not surprisingly, great design. Dana Arnett will share how Chicago has influenced his iconic career, threading the city’s design past to his ever-changing present — from the early beginnings of the American Bauhaus, Container Corporation and Unimark, to the preeminent  evolution of VSA Partners.
