Spoleto's General Director Nigel Redden unveiled the festival's official 2013 poster this morning. The poster features the painting "Angled Ring" by New York artist Robert Mangold. According to the release, "Mangold challenges the typical connotations of what a painting is or could be; his work frequently includes direct architectural references or has the feeling of being drawn by an architect’s hand."
We also learned that the Spoleto Window Display Contest will return this year and expand beyond King Street. Downtown business owners are encouraged to create a window display inspired by the poster by May 15. The winners will get two tickets to the Festival Finale at Middleton Place.
