Grand Circle Gallery in Boston honored Plantsville artist William Monteleagre with fourth prize in its annual “Design Your Own Vintage Travel Poster” competition for New England graphic design undergraduate students. This is the fifth year that Grand Circle Gallery has conducted a poster contest, showcasing the creative talents of students throughout New England.

Sixty-one colleges throughout New England were invited to participate for the Spring 2016 semester. A jury panel of Grand Circle Corporation associates, including Vice Chairman Harriet Lewis, selected the top designs from 120 entries.

A student at Lasell College, Monteleagre won $250 for his depiction of Quechua culture as experienced by travelers on Grand Circle’s Real Affordable Peru destination. The winners and all entrants were acknowledged and cash prizes awarded at a reception at Grand Circle Gallery.  All poster submissions will be viewable on Grand Circle Gallery’s website at gct.com/grandcirclegallery.
