2022 Syracuse Poster Project – 2nd Place

The Syracuse Poster Project is a community arts initiative that displays and celebrates the works of poets and artists throughout the city of Syracuse. Poems are submitted from Syracuse area writers and then a group of invited artists select from the poems to create illustrated works, which will hang in the city for the year.

I selected this poem because it gave me the chance to illustrate the Five Sisters on Park Avenue – five adjacent homes with rich histories in Syracuse. I love how each of the houses has its own colors and style and yet all clearly belong together – a methaphor for the city’s people.
