The Minnesota State Fair has named Kevin Cannon as 2020 Commemorative Artist.

The commemorative poster, a limited number of signed prints and other merchandise featuring the art will be available for purchase after the June unveiling.

Area television KMSP also profiles and talks to Kevin:

“It’s a dream come true to create this artwork. The challenge, of course, will be finding a way to distill this explosion of sights, smells and sounds into one image, to create something that can hang on Minnesotans’ walls during the cold winter months and allow them to relive these 12 summer days again and again,” Cannon said.
