Alumnus Selected to Create 2010 Holland Tulip Time Poster
Coloma, Michigan artist Randall Higdon (‚??72 Fine Arts/Illustration) is probably better recognized for his landscape, shoreline and nautical pieces. But Higdon‚??s piece "Reaching for Light," a vertical watercolor of white Triumphator tulips was exactly what the Holland Tulip Time committee was looking for.
Higdon‚??s watercolor was the winner from among 22 entries and four finalists from a pool of West Michigan artists invited to compete in creating the 2010 poster.
Higdon is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society and the American Society of Marine Artists. He also was creator of the 1994 Tulip Time poster, a horizontal watercolor with multi-colored and varied blooms.
Higdon's 2010 poster, with limited signed copies, will be available Feb. 19 at the Tulip Time office, or online at tuliptime.com. The original is for sale and will be on display at Moynihan Gallery & Framing, Inc., 28 E. 8th St. in Holland, Michigan.
