Foshay Tower – a screenprint

Adam Turman studied graphic design in college and eventually became an illustrator with a fulltime graphic design job. In 2003, Turman began concentrating on illustration and painting and most recently transferred his creative work to screenprints. Turman has produced posters and art prints for music venues, local businesses and art galleries all over the Twin Cities, in addition to venues around the nation.

Turman’s current exhibit in City Hall features iconic images of Minneapolis in a screenprint medium. He merges regional features with a pop style reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s serial images in vibrant hues of orange, green, yellow and red.

Art in the Mayor’s Office Exhibition Program, which began in 1995 and includes a juried competition, provides a prominent setting for local artists to display their works in City Hall.
