ADG teamed up with McQuiddy Classic Printing and Athens Paper to produce 2 limited edition prints that celebrate Nashville’s incredible strength, generosity and sense of community during the recent devastating floods and recovery efforts. Spirit of Nashville will sell the prints online to raise money for flood relief. 100% of the profits will go directly to Samaritan’s Purse and the Red Cross. The prints will be available on Monday, May 17, 2010, but you can pre-order them now.
We will produce a limited edition of 500 prints of each design. The prints will sell for $30 each. For every sale, $30 will be donated directly to the relief agencies. For online orders, shipping will be added to the price, unless the purchaser wishes to pick up the print in person at our studio store.
One poster is titled “Spirit of Nashville” and features two hands joined in lifting a guitar out of the water with the words “Spirit of Nashville: Courage, Hope, Strength, Pride, Generosity” running across the state Flag of Tennessee. The other poster titled “Play On” features a female musician performing in a spotlight. The design was originally created by Matt Lehman when he was one of our staff designers. The woman was on stage in the original design, but in this new version, Joel revised the art by adding flood waters covering the stage, with one of Music City’s new motivational themes: “PLAY ON.”
