Corn Hill Arts Festival Unveils the 2022 Commemorative Poster

The Corn Hill Neighbors Association and ESL Federal Credit Union are excited to announce that earlier today the 2022 commemorative poster, which celebrates the Corn Hill Arts Festival, was unveiled. Bill Belecz, Festival Chair; Faheem Masood, President and CEO of ESL Federal Credit Union; and Patrick Cunningham, Deputy Mayor for the City of Rochester, led the unveiling ceremony at Tony D’s.

“The unveiling begins the celebration of the festival’s return,” said Bill Belecz, 2022 Corn Hill Arts Festival Chairperson. “We, along with ESL Federal Credit Union, look forward to continuing the celebration in July with our neighbors, vendors, and visitors.”

This year’s poster design was created by Jakob Larzelere, a Caledonia, NY native, who is inspired by landscapes and organic beauty. Jakob originally became familiar with the festival when his high school teacher, Vicki McArdle, encouraged him to apply for the Emerging Artists Expo in 2019. After exhibiting at the festival, he was asked to be the new poster artist.

“I wanted to be able to feature the simplicity of Corn Hill, while honoring the history by showcasing the building and cobblestone road,” Larzelere explained. “The long entrance to the yard, yet the open gate in the back symbolizes that after all we have been through, things move on.”

The commissioned artwork will become the iconic image that is featured on the annual poster, clothing, and other festival merchandise.

The festival welcomes more than 300 original artists, 25 music performances, the Emerging Artists Expo, and the Fairy Houses Showcase. Visitors can also enjoy food trucks and two beer and wine gardens. The festival runs July 9 and 10, 2022 in the historic Corn Hill Neighborhood. Admission is free, the grounds will be open from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday, rain or shine.
