Moonalice poster by Dennis Larkins
According to Moonalice legend, tonight’s poster by Dennis Larkins depicts a long-standing tribal ritual, reaching for the moon. Today is the longest day of the year, the day after the summer solstice, and each year on this day Moonalice parents teach their children to pursue important goals in life. While some Moonalice children gravitate towards traditional tribal activities such as agriculture and playing bass, others purse careers in medicine, philosophy, or dancing. All that matters is that each Moonalice be the best person he or she can be. So join us today in reaching for the moon!!!
The concept for my Moraga/Summer Concert Series poster involved “breaking through” a very beautiful but familiar vintage California (as expressed with a classic fruit label scene) to reveal a deeper and more mystical allegorical essence (reaching for the moon?). Hopefully the narrative is open enough to allow for a “universe” of interpretation! – Dennis Larkins
