Newport Music Festival
Music will fill the air, and a poster designed and illustrated by Tom Fowler, will be exhibited throughout New England and the New York metropolitan area, this summer for the celebrated Newport Music Festival (not to be confused with the Newport Jazz Festival). This is the 29th year of the festival, which features over 100 performances of classical music (with an emphasis on Beethoven this year), over a period of 16 consecutive days. The performances are held at locations throughout Newport, including in some of the most lavish mansions.
The poster features 3 of portraits of Beethoven, merged together to create one image divided into 16 squares, each representing a different day of the Festival. The graphics will also be used on the program guide, t-shirts and various other support materials.
