With the usual bit of fanfare, the Spoleto Festival USA has announced the poster of the 2011 season.
This year's is by 50-year-old Argentinean Guillermo Kuitca and titled "Acoustic Mass I (Covent Garden)." The poster is built from electronically adapted images, then processed through water treatments meant to convey the "acoustic and dramatic energy that is heard, felt, and seen in a theater."
I'll shoot you over to The Post and Courier for some press-releasy hashing of the poster's design; read it here.
Given last year's design, it seems a sure thing this year's "flap over the map" (as I've now dubbed all Spoleto poster debates) will surely be lesser.
The 2011 season runs May 27 to June 12.
