A Celebration of The Art of Design: Joel Anderson and The Spirit of Nashville

Joel Anderson's design art not only speaks for itself, it speaks for Nashville. His popular series of iconic posters, The Spirit of Nashville, is an artistic success story. Over the last decade, Joel has developed a series of iconic posters that symbolize the institutions, venues, and concepts that make Nashville Nashville.

All of this he has done through the art of design, creating affordable high quality poster art that is attractive to both residents and visitors alike.

For the celebration of the art of design at The Arts Company, Joel has brought in three original composites of his poster icons that demonstrate the effectiveness of the icons he has created for Nashville. As both artist and art director, Joel has selected different artists to help create the icons that speak for Nashville. Currently, he is working with some students at Watkins School of the Arts, encouraging them to find fresh ways to speak for Nashville's sense of itself.

Joel will be available to talk with in person during First Art Saturday at The Arts Company, May 1, 6-9 pm.
