“Nashville has changed a lot in the decade since Anderson Design Group created the Spirit of Nashville collection. Our goal was to show off Nashville to our friends and clients from other cities by producing 13 prints that celebrated a few of Music City’s best examples of history and culture, “ said Joel Anderson, owner. “We never dreamed our prints would be this popular or receive so much critical acclaim—we were just doing what artists do—expressing ourselves and enjoying a labor of love! If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this collection of poster art is the longest love letter ever written to a city and her wonderful citizens.”
After 10 years of creating 150+ designs, the Spirit of Nashville collection has become an iconic set of images of America’s “It” city.
Nashville Mayor Karl Dean says, “The Spirit of Nashville series pays tribute to our city’s history and growth by showcasing the places we have come to cherish and love in our community. We celebrate this 10th anniversary edition and the more than 100 iconic poster designs that promote Nashville, our landmarks, our legends and our culture. These images help preserve our love for Nashville and all it has to offer.”
