Savannah Stopover Music Festival will partner with Art Rise Savannah for its 2015 band poster juried exhibition.
With more than 90 bands scheduled to play at venues throughout downtown Savannah, the exhibition will bring 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 local bands as well as touring bands from around the country.
Artists are invited to choose a band from the festival lineup at www.savannahstopover.com and create a poster inspired by that band using the specifications listed there. Additional acts, including local bands, will be announced at the Jan. 16 Sched Party at The Jinx. Semi-finalists will be included in an exhibition of posters in the Jepson Center atrium from March 2-9.
Posters will be juried by a panel of local artists, graphic designers and the organizers of Savannah Stopover. The top three artists will be announced at an opening reception March 6 at the Jepson Center as part of the First Friday Art March.
Details for poster entry are at www.artrisesavannah.org/stopover. These details include the process of submitting a poster, design requirements and judging criteria. Award packages will be announced on the Art Rise website leading up to the festival. Packages will include gift certificates to local art and design businesses along with other prizes. The deadline for entries is Feb. 23.
