Festival Posters, designed by Milton Glaser

Festival poster designed by Milton Glaser2014 marks the 13th year that Milton Glaser designed a poster for the Cooperstown Summer Music Festival. All of the posters revolve around the theme of a cow with a violin, a nod to Cooperstown’s rural setting, and the Festival’s continuing relationship with The Farmers’ Museum, where the Festival started in 1999. The Festival is honored that Milton Glaser continues to offer his unique and varied talents to give us a visual legacy as well as a musical legacy.

Posters, which are 24″ x 36″, may be purchased at Festival concerts or by mail. Purchase inquiries should be sent to posters.csmf@gmail.com.
