Poster Art Exhibit and Sale
In 2018, the official festival poster was designed by Ryszard Kaja. The exhibit of his wonderful work, including posters from the series "Poland" in honor of the centennial celebrations of Poland's regained independence, delighted the festival audience who saw it at the AFS Cinema and the Blanton Museum of Art.
Ryszard was planning to come to Austin the following year with an even larger exhibit.
We were devastated to hear that on April 17, 2019, Ryszard Kaja died in Poland. His beautiful, thoughtful, witty images remind us of who he was and make our world a better place.
An exhibit of over fifty works by Ryszard Kaja was open throughout the festival November 8 - 11 at the AFS Cinema Event Hall and on November 18 in the Blanton Museum of Art during the Centennial Poland’s Independence Celebrations. Take a look at some of the posters from the exposition.
The Centennial Celebrations
Poland‘s history is long, interesting, and convoluted. The country went through good and bad times, changed territories, rulers, political systems, gaining cultural depth and richness and, in 1918, regained the independence lost for 123 years.
Celebrate with us the centennial this year - join us for events full of music, films, stories, food, and friends!
