We are pleased to report that our 16th Annual unveiling event of the 2017 Syracuse Poster Project Series on April 14 was a great success!
Along with their families and friends, several of our featured poets, artists and students turned out for this yearly Spring celebration.
With music by D.J. Bella, Jasmine Coan,
and tasty Hors-D’oeuvres by Creole Soul Cafe, the evening moved smoothly from brief introductions by Jim Emmons (co-founder of the Syracuse Poster Project) and John Thompson (Illustration Professor at Syracuse University) to the haiku readings and acknowledgements of the night’s Poets and Artists.
Of course, the evening would not have been possible without the valued assistance of our enthusiastic interns and volunteers (click here to read more); our committed Board Members (click here to read more),
or our dedicated Sponsors and Supporters (click here to read more)!
Once again, the Atrium, at the City Hall Commons, proved to be the perfect spot to exhibit the kiosk-sized haiku posters. The excitement upon entering through the Atrium doors was unmistakable!
What a thrill to slowly walk down the exhibit hall, watching poets find their poster, listening to artists and poets meeting for the first time, mingling with the crowd and oohing and ahhing at every poster!
On May 1, the new 2017 Series Posters were mounted in specially designated kiosks throughout the downtown Syracuse area.

Our thanks, again, to all who made this a very special evening of community, poetry and art!
