Arts booster group Art Rise Savannah has partnered with the Savannah Stopover Music Festival for its 2015 Annual Band Poster Juried Exhibition. The city’s graphic and visual artists are invited to create posters inspired by the individual bands scheduled to perform at this year’s festival, set for March 5th-7th. Acts performing during this year’s indie-centric Stopover range from established touring bands such as Southern Culture on the Skids and Generationals to local Savannah acts including Cusses and Triathalon. (See http://www.savannahstopover.com/ for full lineup.)
Posters will be judged by a panel of local artists, graphic designers and Savannah Stopover organizers, with semi-finalists announced Feb. 19th for public voting, and included in an exhibition of posters in Savannah’s Jepson Center Atrium from March 2nd-9th. The top three artists will be announced at an opening reception for the finalists at the Jepson Center on March 6th, as part of the First Friday Art March.
Deadline for entries is Monday, Feb. 16th. Details for poster entry, including design requirements, are posted at http://artrisesavannah.org/stopover/.
