He’s the Poster Child for BHS Production
BURLINGTON -- Collaboration of the arts is a fine-tuned instrument at Burlington High School, coming to life each year with the design and implementation of the poster artwork for the annual spring musical.
With “Mamma Mia!” on its way to record ticket sales, several BHS art students in Keith March Mistler’s Digital Publishing course worked with anticipation and excitement on a competitive assignment to become the designer of this year’s poster.
Freshman Benjamin Kirabo’s artwork has been chosen for this year’s “Mamma Mia!” poster. Eleven students competed for the honor by watching the movie version of the musical, analyzing thematic elements, and creating sketches and inspiration boards with imagery, fonts and color schemes. Final designs were submitted, and the one best suited to the production was chosen.
This is the first year a freshman’s poster design has won the competition.
