The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts has released its 2022 collectible poster. The vibrant 24” by 36” poster is a stylized bouquet of flowers made of elements representing art and music in with Penn State’s Old Main, and other visual references to Central Pennsylvania in the background. The poster is free and can be picked up locally at the Juniata River Valley Visitors Bureau in the historic courthouse on the square in downtown Lewistown.

The poster for the 2022 festival was designed by Saige Sommese, a 2018 graduate of Penn State’s graphic design program, in collaboration with her father, emeritus Professor of Graphic Design at Penn State, Lanny Sommese. For over 40 years, the elder Sommese has designed the colorful posters for the Festival.

The festival will take place from July 13 to July 17 in downtown State College and on Penn State’s campus.  Children and Youth Day is July 13 and the Festival’s well-known Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition opens on July 14.
