The Cincinnati Art Museum held a themed community art weekend every holiday season called the Holiday Xtravaganza. The 2009 theme was “Animals in Art” and was named “Magnificent Menagerie”. I was contracted to design the poster for the event that would be distributed to local schools. They wanted a dreamlike feel so I worked with a photo collage and tried to make it as luminous as possible. The final design was printed on opalescent paper so it really glowed when the light hit it.
