A Special Show of 100 Weston Art Gallery Exhibition Posters Designed by Scott Bruno
DateSep 2 - 10, 2010
VenueWeston Art Gallery
CINCINNATI, Ohio—On Thursday, September 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., the Cincinnati Arts Association’s Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts will open Wall-to-Wall, A Special Show of 100 Weston Art Gallery Exhibition Posters. In 1999, the Weston Art Gallery, in preparing to launch a new film/performance festival, was introduced to independent local graphic designer Scott Bruno, who was recommended for his ability to create a strong graphic identity for the program. The InterMedia Festival ran for four years during which Bruno became the graphic designer of choice for all of the Weston’s printed materials. From exhibition announcements to posters, program logos, catalogues and brochures, Bruno established a clean and sophisticated design aesthetic.
One of the most popular services the Weston provides artists is an accompanying set of exhibition posters. Desirable for their attractive and memorable impressions conveying the essence of each show, exhibition posters are an opportunity for artists to have high-quality promotional pieces long after their shows have closed. This is a rare and coveted premium; especially as artists are invited to participate in the design process, but do not have to undertake it on their own.
With 10-13 exhibitions per year, Bruno has, over the period of a decade, created 100 original poster designs for the Weston. To celebrate this milestone, Wall-to-Wall, opening Thursday, September 2 and continuing through Friday, September 10, will dedicate a week to the display of these impressive clarions for new work. Each poster is 44 x 23 inches framed.
The Weston is known for its outstanding printed materials and has won annual awards of distinction from the Ohio Museums Association and the American Association of Museums since the gallery’s inception in 1995. Its mission is to present and support the visual arts of the Tri-state region through exhibitions and special programs.
