2024 Poster Artist

The Stone Arch Bridge Festival is proud to reveal the 2024 Collector’s Poster by Minnesota artist Sage Phillips.

Every year, the Stone Arch Bridge Festival handpicks an artist to encapsulate the essence of the Minneapolis Riverfront in a one-of-a-kind limited-release poster. This year, we are proud to feature the talented Sage Phillips. Their 2024 poster, a stunning oil painting print, showcases the iconic Stone Arch Bridge and the majestic Great Blue Heron, a true symbol of the riverfront’s wildlife.

The 2024 Collector’s Poster and other works by Sage Phillips will be available for purchase at their booth (#156), located near the Hennepin Ave Bridge. The beautiful poster image will be on the festival tote bag available to purchase at the festival information booths.

“For this year’s poster, I created a painting featuring one of my favorite members of the riverfront’s wildlife population: the Great Blue Heron.  They are such beautiful birds and never fail to bring an air of mystery, grace (and a smile to my face) when they fly by with their iconic silhouette. It was the perfect fit to pair with the equally iconic Stone Arch Bridge!” – Sage Phillips
