El Paso Locomotive FC and Creative Kids El Paso have teamed up to produce four gameday posters designed by local youth artists. Locomotive gameday posters have featured prominent local artists since the start of the 2019 season. These four select posters have each been designed by a child in the Creative Kids Program with the guidance from the Locomotive creative team. Fans can get their hands on the first poster at this Wednesday’s match versus San Antonio FC.
Creative Kids El Paso is a non-profit organization that is nationally recognized. They are dedicated to providing a high-quality youth development program utilizing the visual arts to empower youth in the region. With collaboration from the El Paso Locomotive creative team, the Creative Kids participants were introduced to the process of creating a poster for a professional sports franchise and were guided along the way, receiving real-world experience on how to turn art into a career.
“It was wonderful working closely with the staff at Creative Kids and the very talented young artists in the process of designing our next match posters. They are fantastic kids and I'm glad that Locomotive had the opportunity to collaborate with them and introduce a form of art they may have never been exposed to before," said El Paso Locomotive graphic designer Itzel Zambrano.
The Creative Kids posters will be featured for the following matches: July 17th, July 20th, August 17th and October 2nd.
