Richard Deon's Writ Large Billboard in Saint Louis

Today I am at the SGC conference in Saint Louis for a panel discussion called, Counterbalancing The News: printmaking takes on the mainstream media. About a month ago I was asked to judge a billboard competition which would coincide with the conference. Having arrived yesterday with little to do but meet the other panelists, I wandered my way over to the Good Citizen Gallery to meet the director Andrew James. We had a nice talk and I managed to grab a few photos of the winning design installed above the gallery. Andrew, upon purchasing the building, has used the pre installed billboard to bring artistic ideas to Saint Louis as opposed to the typical commercial signage which often looms high above. Big thanks to Andrew for all of his efforts and to the winning design by Richard Deon.
