VCU Jazz Orchestra Poster Contest
The posters below are a collaborative project between VCU's Jazz Studies Program and Communication Design Program. Specifically, VCU Jazz Studies Director Antonio Garcia provided data and images to Prof. Russ Hanchin so that Prof. Hanchin could challenge his "Print II" class (CARD 365) with the job of creating a great poster for the VCU Jazz Orchestra I's concert with guest bassist Scott Colley.
The entries were then juried by Prof. Garcia. The winner and finalists receive display in VCU's Singleton Center leading to the evening of the concert. A black-and-white-reduction of the winner also is mass-produced for local distribution as publicity, and all 14 posters are also displayed around Richmond.
Each student artist received some items of gratitude from VCU Jazz Studies, which is pleased to highlight the artistry of these creative individuals!
