On the heels of the publication of our 2018 Festival’s dates and a sneak peek at its speakers, the Charleston to Charleston Literary Festival is thrilled to announce the creation of a 2018 Charleston to Charleston Literary Festival poster produced by internationally known local artist and activist Jonathan Green.
This exciting collaboration began when Green spoke in the 2017 inaugural festival, partnering with Booker Prize winning author Ben Okri to give one of the most talked about presentations of the entire weekend. This year Green will offer up a different sort of presentation: a glimpse of the local aesthetic with his painting, Charleston Colors.
To Green, all artistic styles and contributions are vastly important. “Written words help us think,” he says. “Music and theater teach us to listen, and the visual arts inspire us to see.”
The poster, featuring Green’s vibrantly colorful, stylized version of Charleston row houses, will add a touch of Charleston’s iconic charm to the literary festival as it enters its second year.
Posters will be on sale at all Festival venues in November. Signed posters will be available for $50, while unsigned prints will be sold for $25. For more information about the festival or the poster, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
