Arts Fest 2015 poster design released

The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts released its 2015 collectible poster Monday.

The 24- by 36-inch poster features the festival’s jester floating Mary Poppins-style against a blue sky over a landscape of mountains, leaving a trail of musical notes in his wake.

The poster is free and can be picked up at several local businesses, including the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, Central Pennsylvania Convention and Visitors Bureau, HUB-Robeson Center Desk and Hintz Family Alumni Center at Penn State, the Penn State Federal Credit Union and the Juniata River Valley Visitors Bureau

Lanny Sommese, an emeritus professor of graphic design in the College of Arts and Architecture at Penn State, designed the poster. He has designed Arts Festival posters for over 30 years, which are on display in the HUB.

The festival will take place from July 8 to 12 in downtown State College and at Penn State.
