The class, under the direction of Assistant Professor Mark DeYoung, began working on the project in January. Representatives from the Festival met with the students and presented the ideas and look they wanted captured in the final piece of artwork. The students were given the task to each come up with concepts which would be critiqued, edited and then submitted as final designs to be judged by a committee of Rivers & Spires officials.

“We were fortunate to work with such a talented group of students this year, and had a very difficult decision selecting the final piece of artwork,” said Festival Director, Doug Barber. “Lucas’ piece, we felt, really encompassed the look and vibe of the Festival and will be a great piece to use in next year’s promotional material.”

The selected artwork will be used in the 2013 Festival poster as well as fliers, marketing material and other printed collateral. Other members of the class who submitted artwork are Theresa Biermann, Steven Lafferty, Susan Liberatore, Briana MacArthur, Oscar Quintanilla and Danielle Spoon.
