Historic Savannah Foundation (HSF), a leading preservation organization committed to preserving and protecting Savannah’s heritage, recently selected Gadsden Elementary School student Pe’lae Massey’s design as the official 2013 Savannah Preservation Festival poster.
Massey’s colorful mixed-media collage, which includes a two-story Victorian home created with patterned paper, is the featured image for the 2013 Savannah Preservation Festival. Last May, Massey was honored as the elementary school winner of the Pennies for Preservation Poster Contest. Her poster design ties in with HSF’s 2013 Savannah Preservation Festival theme, “Preserving a Sense of Place.”
“We encouraged students to submit creative, original posters with vibrant images celebrating our community’s strong sense of place,” said HSF president and CEO Daniel Carey. “We were impressed with the quality of the submissions and are delighted to share Pe’lae’s image nationally as we promote the 2013 Savannah Preservation Festival.”
The 2013 Savannah Preservation Festival officially kicks off on May 2 and reinforces HSF’s ongoing mission of education and outreach. Savannah Preservation Festival ticket packages are currently available online at www.myHSF.org.
HSF is currently accepting submissions for the 2013 Pennies for Preservation Poster Contest. Submission rules and applications are also available online at www.myHSF.org.
Historic Savannah Foundation is a non-profit historic preservation organization supported by a strong and dedicated membership. HSF was established in 1955 in order to save the 1820 Isaiah Davenport House from demolition. From this initial project, Historic Savannah Foundation launched a Revolving Fund which has since saved 350+ buildings. The mission of Historic Savannah Foundation is to preserve and protect Savannah’s heritage through advocacy, education and community involvement.
