The Bryan-College Station Sister Cities Association, in partnership with Brazos Valley Worldfest and The Arts Council of Brazos Valley, is commissioning the inaugural poster as a fundraising initiative - process from poster orders support youth cultural exchanges between B-CS Sister Cities and its three Sister Cities: Greifswald, Germany; Bastogne, Belgium; and Salamanca, Mexico.
Artists were recruited from the Sister Cities and following a call for poster entries, Enrico Pense, a wall/graphic artist from Greifswald, Germany was selected to serve as the Artist Ambassador to design the 2016 poster.
Enrico will travel from Germany to participate in Brazos Valley Worldfest. A number of sponsored events will occur for the community to meet Mr. Pense. Leading up to the 2016 festivities, the commemorative posters- numbered/artist signed and unsigned, will be available for order soon through our website.
“I am honored to design and carry a piece of art from
Greifswald over the wide world to Texas and contribute something to help make Brazos Valley Worldfest an attractive festival,” expressed Mr. Pense.
