Art on the Green Poster Exhibit at Coeur d'Alene Library

Art on the Green has had festival posters almost since the beginning in 1968, and holding a poster contest began in 1991. To kick off the celebrations for our 50th annual Art on the Green this summer, the majority of our past posters are currently on display at the Coeur d'Alene Library at the bottom of the large staircase. Stop by and have a look at our collection of posters - each one represents an Art on the Green, all the volunteer dedication and effort involved, and a beloved annual community gathering place. On display through February.

Contemporary Art @ Art on the Green

There are many genres of art represented at Art on the Green, from rustic to playful to elegant. The booth of artist Yoshi Aoki of Seaside, Oregon has caught special attention at the festival because of his unique contemporary, organic art. "Using metal and various mixed media materials like wood, ceramic, concrete, I try to incorporate the balance between the movement and stillness that I find inherent in nature." Come and see Aoki's booth at Art on the Green at North Idaho College today!
