The 2013 Corn Hill Arts Festival Commemorative Poster celebrates the past, present, and future of our vibrant neighborhood.
Teresa Haag created the piece on a map overlay with oil paints. A beautiful blue sky surrounds a series of juxtaposed buildings in the Corn Hill District. Avery Mall is focused in the foreground, and the Rochester city skyline stands in the background.
The painting’s use of warm colors accentuates the autumn feel, as leaves fall off trees and the grass turns yellow. Haag captures the sense of community and pride that is so prominent in the Corn Hill District.
“Corn Hill represents different things to different people. For me, three things come to mind: historical significance, an urban setting, and an emphasis on community,” said Haag. “This poster illustrates those concepts by highlighting Avery Mall and the gorgeous home in the foreground, the newer homes and residences behind that, and in the background, the iconic city skyline.”
Haag’s artwork and signing will be available on collectible merchandise celebrating the 45th Annual Corn Hill Arts Festival. The Merchandise Booth is located at the Frederick Douglas and Adams Street intersection.
