Syracuse Poster Project Unveiling of 2021 Poster Series @ City Hall Commons
DOWNTOWN SYRACUSE, THURS APRIL 21 @ 6 P.M. - The Syracuse Poster Project is excited to unveil their 21st annual poster series in Downtown Syracuse. The event brings together poets and artists from the community to create a series of poetry posters for the city’s poster panels.
This year, poets and artists were given the prompt “10 Syracuse Spirits” which include the spirits of snow days, ancestral guidance, historic architecture, and more. The project encompasses diverse kinds of poetry to highlight Syracuse’s culture and creativity and reaches beyond the city by selling poster prints, notecards, and poetry booklets. Ten posters submitted by more than 100 poets and 32 artists were selected by the Project’s advisory board.
The celebration at City Hall Commons will include a gallery-style viewing of all 10 large posters, refreshments, and commentary from the artists and poets.
Soon after the unveiling, the Downtown Committee of Syracuse will install the posters along Salina and Warren Streets. The posters remain on display for a year.
