NEW ORLEANS (press release) – The makers of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic have released the official poster for 2021 featuring a realistic painting by locally renowned artist Terry Marks. The 2021 poster features City Park’s scenic peristyle reflected off a puddle during a sunset.
Marks drew inspiration for the painting and poster from The Scenic Beauty of City Park and New Orleans, and he used both as inspiration for his rendition of the highly anticipated annual CCC poster. .
“A photographer friend of mine took this image of the peristyle at sunset and I knew right away that was the image I wanted to incorporate into my poster design,” Marks said. “Since I became an artist, most of my subjects have been on local themes, I like to capture the beauty of our city.”
Marks is the owner of Local Artscapes By Terry J. Marks, Sr. His studio is in Metairie on Airline Highway.
