On April 14th, we celebrated the unveiling of the Syracuse Poster Project’s 2016 poster series. Our 15th annual event was a wonderful evening of art, haiku, hors d’oeuvres and music! Congratulations once again to our 2016 poet-artist pairs–your creativity represents another year of fine work! Our thanks also to all those who attended, and to our sponsors and the many volunteers who helped make this celebration a success.
If you happened to miss this colorful celebration, do not fear: photos of this special evening can be found here; the names of the poet-artist combinations here; and you will find this new series of eclectic posters here–as well as in kiosks throughout downtown Syracuse.
Our featured poster this week comes from the 2016 series. Written by Grace Carroll and illustrated by Syracuse University Illustration student, Madeleine Slade, this haiku-poster lightheartedly reminds us that smiles can be our umbrella–even on a rainy Spring day such as today!
