20TH ANNIVERSARY POSTER
For Art Beat's 20th Anniversary DTSB decided to commission this year's poster instead of having a contest and reached out to local artist Sam Lima. Lima, a Wisconsin native, moved to South Bend to continue his education in architecture and urbanism, and found a dynamic community that cares deeply about the flourishing of the city. He has been inspired by the resilience of South Bend, and the artistic and musical creativity that thrives here. When he is not designing buildings, he can often be found paddling on the St. Joseph river, dabbling in amateur photography, playing mandolin for Joe Baughman and the Righteous Few, or traveling. Before switching to architecture, he was briefly a graphic design major, and has carried those skills into the design of several posters highlighting places that he cares about. In designing a poster for Art Beat, his goal was to develop imagery and themes that capture the feeling of excitement and the vibrancy of Art Beat itself, and showcase the beautiful setting of the event, along the river.
