2018 Art Beat Poster Designed by Rick Podrasky

We Congratulate Rick On Being Chosen Winner Of The 2018 Art Beat Poster Design Contest.

Artist Statement from Rick Podrasky

My name is Rick Podrasky, and I have lived and worked in the South Bend area since relocating here from Washington, DC in 2004, ultimately returning to Indiana after having graduated with a degree in architecture from Notre Dame in 1991. I have been an architect for the past twenty years; however, I have been an artist and graphic designer for decades prior to that! I enjoy painting and sketching using a variety of media, but working in a digital format has been the primary means of expression these days…

My inspiration for this year’s Art Beat poster has been our City’s new flag, which is now starting to happily fly in our neighborhoods as well as our civic buildings. All the elements that make up Art Beat – music, art, food and dance – are celebrated emblematically against a big blue midwestern sky over the skyline of South Bend and the river that gave her its name.
