Texas Folklife Festival 2004 commemorative poster unveiled

(May 6, 2004)--The commemorative poster for Texas Folklife Festival 2004 was unveiled today at the Institute of Texan Cultures (ITC), the site of the popular summer event in downtown San Antonio. The poster is 24th in a series that began in 1981.

The 33rd annual Texas Folklife Festival runs Thursday, June 10 through Sunday, June 13 at the Institute of Texan Cultures in HemisFair Park.

Created by local graphic artist Jeff Heinke, this year's poster was inspired during a hike on a Texas Hill Country trail.

"I stumbled across a weather-beaten grapevine that was surviving despite the rigors of a drought, the unforgiving limestone and finally the trampling of both deer and man," said Heinke. "The vine yielded a simple concept. Much like the intertwining branches and ribbons depicted in the poster, the diverse cultures of Texas weave around each other, evolving into a unified symbol of harmony."

A signed, certified, limited edition of the 2004 TFF poster is $50, $20 unsigned. Poster dimensions are 16 inches wide by 24 inches tall. The new poster and those from previous festivals can be purchased online at the Texas Folklife Festival Web site, select art galleries in San Antonio, the Institute of Texan Cultures Store and at the festival.

The 2004 poster design also is featured on T-shirts which can be purchased along with other souvenir products at the ITC Store and during the festival.
