The Arts Council of Greater Lansing has arranged with Adams Outdoor to post billboards which help promote the arts in the greater Lansing area. Barb Hranilovich, the ZimmerFish illustrator, enjoyed seeing the series from last year and will be one of the artists whose work is appearing in 2012. She chose this image because the medium in which it was done (encaustic) is unfamiliar to most and she hoped the unique surface might pique interest. The strong textures should also come to life at the massive scale.
Barb’s board will be going up Thursday, February 16th on I96, just west of MLK(99). The timing is good, as Barb has two encaustic exhibits later this year; in April at Midtown Gallery in Kalamazoo and in August at Mackerel Sky in East Lansing.
Please let us know if you’ve passed by and seen it.
