Syracuse Poster Project Banner

Artist
I chose to depict Harriet May Mills, prominent leader in the women’s suffrage movement, born in Syracuse in 1857. As the backdrop, I featured the Harriet May Mills Art and Home Center, a permanent structure at the Fairgrounds that opened in 1934. The font I chose is called “Keep on Truckin,” which I thought was fitting given the circumstances of our present political climate. My hope is to pay homage to a true American hero by adding a touch of whimsy to an overly political time.

I gathered historical photos to use as visual reference and then assembled a digital collage with multiple layers of drawing and painting. I am grateful to be participating in the Poster Project for my third year!
