ASO announces Music and Art poster series

The Akron Symphony Orchestra will debut a Music and Art poster series for the 2019-20 season, with artists from across Northeast Ohio creating limited-edition posters for select concerts.

Interested artists are asked to submit a poster design that represents their own interpretation of the selected concert based on the music and/or composer. There are no requirements on colors or the finished size of your poster. (Additional design guidelines are available for download here.)

Up to four artists will be selected for each concert and selected artists:

  • will receive two free tickets for the performance,
  • will have the opportunity to display and sell their artwork the night of the concert at The University of Akron’s E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall,
  • will have their poster featured on the Symphony’s social media channels and website.

“We are always exploring opportunities to create partnerships that have a positive impact on the community,” said Thomas Moore, Director of Marketing for the Akron Symphony. “Musicians and artists have long inspired each other, so building a relationship between the Symphony and the many creative artists in Northeast Ohio is a natural extension of those longstanding ties.”

The performances that will be featured in the Music and Art series are:

Artists who are interested in participating in the project may submit their art by September 1, 2019, via the form below.
