We just wanted to tell you a little bit about this year’s event poster. To celebrate our 5th year of the River of Light, we decided on the theme ‘Our Town – faces, places and landmarks from your home town’. We are hoping that all of the buildings that people recreate in lantern form will take the shape of a newly formed ‘global village’, as they parade through the streets of Waterbury on December 6th. For the poster design, artist Gowri Savoor created paper-cuts of buildings in all the towns that we have collaborated with in the last 5 years – and we’ve thrown a few beloved Vermont landmarks in as well. You might spot Waterbury’s Thatcher Brook Primary School, The Vermont State Complex and the historic railway station (which now houses Green Mountain Coffee Roasters), also Burlington City Arts on Church Street, Helen Day Art Center in Stowe and the State House in Montpelier.
