Art Rise Savannah is excited to announce it’s partnership with Savannah Stopover Music Festival for it’s 2015 Annual Band Poster Juried Exhibition. With over 90 bands scheduled to play at venues throughout Historic Downtown Savannah, the Savannah Stopover Band Poster Exhibition brings together the best of Savannah’s arts and music scenes.
Art Rise Savannah welcomes the city’s graphic and visual artists to create posters inspired by the individual bands from the 2015 lineup! These include our local bands as well as touring bands from around the country. Artists are invited to choose a band from the Festival lineup listing at savannahstopover.com and create a poster inspired by that band using the specifications listed here. Additional acts, including local bands, will be announced January 16th, 2015. Semi-Finalists will be included in an exhibition of posters in the Telfair Museums' Jepson Center for the Arts Atrium from March 2 - 9, 2015.
Posters will be juried by a panel of local artists, graphic designers, and the organizers of Savannah Stopover Music Festival. Semi-Finalists will be announced on February 19th for public voting. 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.
