Rozan Henning was chosen as the Grand Champion Artist of the 2016 Fairtastic Poster Art Competition!
The Wisconsin State Fair Fairtastic Poster Art Competition is a way to celebrate and engage local and statewide artisan talent. The top four finalists included Mary Heinze of Portage; Leslie Zantow of Cambria; Rozan Henning of Augusta; and Frank Korb of Burlington, who submitted drafts of the theme “Animals at the Wisconsin State Fair.”
Henning originally hails from Milwaukee and is a self-taught artist who works in oil and acrylic paints. For several years, Henning, along with her husband and daughter, showed American Saddlebred horses at the Wisconsin State Fair. She will attend several days of State Fair, working on various drawings and answering fairgoers’ questions.
The 2016 artwork will be featured on a commemorative poster available for purchase online and during State Fair. All proceeds from poster and merchandise sales will support the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation.
