SSCVA Seeking Artists for New South Shore Poster Series

South Shore Arts and South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority (SSCVA) and have partnered to create another “Just Around the Corner” poster series. Together they are inviting new artists to contribute to the this curated series that was started in 1997. The poster series aims to promote visitors to Northwest Indiana while instilling a sense of pride within residents by visually sharing the Region.

These posters are a continuation of the South Shore Posters series that adorned train stations from Chicago to South Bend throughout the mid-1920s. These vintage posters were designed to attract both business and leisure travelers to the area by showcasing colorful depictions of the attractions, events and history along the South Shore of Lake Michigan.

“We take pride in continuing the long-standing tradition of the South Shore poster series which showcases the region’s destinations and local artistry,” said Nikki Lopez, Interim President & CEO, SSCVA.

The “Just Around the Corner” poster series is seeking new artists to keep the series thriving while engaging the upcoming generations at an artistic level. As this series continues to grow, it aims to showcase the South Shore and inspire pride within the region.

The goal is to draw in additional sponsors, leading to increased commissions for artists in the area. As the series progresses and gains momentum, the SSCVA is dedicated to broadening the roster of artists accessible to sponsors for the creation of new posters in the series. There are already commissions waiting to be fulfilled, and sponsors are actively seeking artists for their projects.

Submissions are due by May 1, 2024. To submit an application please visit www.southshoreartsonline.org/calls.
