We’re pleased to plug staff writer Andrea Gollin’s new endeavor: The Miami Poster Project, an initiative to represent the city every year with a fresh poster. “The idea behind the Miami Poster Project is to provide a space for the community’s interpretations of Miami,” says Andrea. “Our goal is to showcase and celebrate contemporary, authentic ways that the community depicts Miami – a portrait of the place, by its people.”
The year one poster will actually be a series of five related posters by Philip Brooker, longtime Miami Herald art director and illustrator. The series will be unveiled in November and so far it has been accepted for exhibition at the Miami International Airport and ArtCenter/South Florida. The posters will be completely accessible to all community members via free downloads from the project’s website and through free posters passed out through the branch libraries in the Miami-Dade County Public Library System.
