Share your feedback on the 2013 Poster
Art PosterEach year for over three decades, the Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission’s annual art poster has showcased a different, talented local artist. This tradition lives on in 2013. Poster donations help support the Commission’s mission and programs: fostering public participation, increasing access, and forging alliances in support of local arts, culture and history.
2013 Art Poster
This year’s poster features a print, Crabapple by Madison artist Jayne Reid Jackson. It is indicative of Jackson’s body of work with its precision of line and subtle use of color to create a delicate rendering of glass and flora. Her use of pattern as graphic elements juxtaposed with the natural make her work more than just a representation of plant and vessel, but as she describes, "capture(s) what is special about everyday objects and the intrinsic beauty of the commonplace."
This lovely poster (18” x 26.5”) features creative design by Lois Bergerson and production with financial support from Alliant Energy.
