EL AL Poster Competition–We Have a Winner!
We have a winner! When we opened the exhibition To the Point: Posters by Dan Reisinger last month, not only were we excited to have the unique and inspired designs of Dan Reisinger on view in our Ruby Gallery, but thanks to his many years of collaboration with EL AL Israel Airlines and the support of the Consulate General of Israel, we were able to offer the opportunity for anyone to share their designs with us and enter a contest to win airfare to Israel via EL AL! We are happy to announce that Chris Kim A. (click here to read how he got the “A” from Andy Warhol!) has won the contest, and excited to share the winning poster as well as the designs of seven other finalists below.

Open to participants ages fourteen and older, contestants were asked to submit their own Reisinger-inspired designs for a poster advertisement promoting EL AL’s flights from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv, Israel. In addition to being awarded two airline tickets to Israel, the winner would also have their poster presented at the Skirball alongside the exhibition’s beautiful selection of Reisinger posters.

Without exception, every submission we received was impressive. It was a difficult decision, but after much deliberation, a panel of judges from the Skirball Cultural Center and the Consulate General of Israel narrowed it down to eight entries that were then sent to Dan Reisinger and his longtime friend and fellow graphic designer Arnold Schwartzman.
