Historic Savannah Foundation, a leading preservation organization committed to preserving and protecting Savannah’s heritage, recently selected the design of Savannah Arts Academy student Mary Sinsheimer as the official 2017 Savannah Preservation Festival poster.

Sinsheimer’s artwork, which highlights the portico of an historic Savannah home, is the featured image for the 2017 Savannah Preservation Festival. Last May, Sinsheimer participated in HSF’s Annual Pennies for Preservation Poster Contest, under the direction of art teacher Steve Schetski, while she was a tenth grade student at Savannah Arts Academy.

“We encouraged students to submit creative, original posters with vibrant images celebrating the theme This Place Matters,” said HSF president and CEO Daniel Carey. “We were impressed with the quality of the submissions and are delighted to share Mary’s artwork as we promote the 2017 Savannah Preservation Festival throughout the region.”
