The Ravinia Women’s Board has unveiled the winner of its annual Ravinia season poster competition. Minneapolis graphic designer Sean Quinn, 26, is a self-described “plant nerd” who focuses heavily on trees in his winning piece. Quinn says the piece was inspired by a “film with orchestra” evening he attended with his family several summers ago. “I wanted to capture the way the film was brought to life by the live music. Exaggerated trees and lighting give the scene a dramatic feel, while the soft sky and bright moon evoke whimsy and fantasy,” he said.
Quinn will receive a $1,000 cash prize, and his design will be featured in the promotion of the upcoming 2019 Ravinia season, distributed among hundreds of Chicagoland stores and public spaces, and sold exclusively at The Festival Shop.
