2019 Syracuse Poster Project Annual Unveiling

The opening event of the 2019 poster series will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 18 in the atrium at City Hall Commons, 201 E. Washington St.

The poets and artists of this year's series gather with friends, family, and other supporters of public art for a celebration of the new posters. We'll have food, drink, music, and of course, a display of the new posters. We'll also be selling prints of the new work.

City Hall Commons is located on East Washington Street, between Warren and Montgomery streets. It's the flat iron building just south of the State Tower Building.

Splash Poetry Installation

When is an invisible poem visible? With our splash poetry installation, the answer was in the weather: when rained. Or when a savvy passerby spalshed the sidewalk with water.

In May, 2017, board members Joe Murphy and Jason Evans stenciled 10 haiku from our archives at select downtown spots, using a special spray paint. The paint remains clear until it gets wet; it then appears light gray.

The temporary installation featured haiku by 10 poets: Pearl Baldwin, Ralph Long Jr., Claire Bobrycki, Molly English, Ross Getman, Kali Huff, Thea St. Omer, Tom Huff, Sara Parrott and Bryan Wilbur.

We may eventually redo the installation. Meanwhile, enjoy a video of the process by clicking here.

Improvised drawing of Syracuse
Improvisational Illustration

See a Video of Improvisational Drawing

This improviational illustration was created in the spring of 2014 as a prelude to a portrait demonstration given by visiting artist Max Ginsberg to the Syracuse University Illustation Program.

For the prelude, Stanislas Martin-Finzo, coordinator of the SU Illustration Abroad Program in Strasbourg, France, arranged a collaborative drawing performance with the SU Jazz Band and several illustration students. Students created music and art based on elements of free jazz.

We are proud to sell a signed sketch made in preparation for the peformance by illustrators Nkiru Sewell, Monica Sofia Rexach Ortiz, Loic Urbaniak, and William Smith. Smith went on be featured in the 2016 poster series; Ortiz, in the 2017 series.

This framed work, 26 x 34 inches, is valued at $500. Inquire about buying it by emailing jim@posterproject.org.
