Historic Savannah Foundation, selected Gadsden Elementary School student Pe’lae Massey’s (pictured left) design as the official 2013 Savannah Preservation Festival poster. Massey’s colorful mixed-media collage, which includes a two-story Victorian home created with patterned paper, is the featured image for the 2013 Savannah Preservation Festival. Last May, Massey was honored as the elementary school winner of the Pennies for Preservation Poster Contest. Her poster design ties in with HSF’s 2013 Savannah Preservation Festival theme, “Preserving a Sense of Place.”
