Commemorative poster unveiled for Princeton’s Z-Tour

The first-ever commemorative poster for the Z-Tour Bicycle Ride was unveiled at an artist’s reception on Friday, at the Sundance Gallery in Princeton. The 2017 poster design was created by Courtney Ossola (third from left) of Granville, a graphics design student at Illinois Valley Community College. Also pictured are Alissa Morrison of Oglesby (from left), a finalist in the competition; Kaitlyn Anthony of Oglesby, finalist; Ossola; Frankie Skoflanc, graphic design teacher at IVCC; Cody Frey of Mendota, finalist; Dave Mosier and Brian Church, both on the Z Tour Steering Committee. The Z-Tour is a bike ride fundraiser, which accommodates riders of all levels; the proceeds benefit the Zearing Child Enrichment Center.
