About the cover artist Lynn Snyder-Hinds
Cover is by Lynn Snyder-Hinds of Springfield, winner of this year’s Capital City Visitor cover art contest, which drew more than 40 entries. Synder-Hinds and others who competed were honored at a reception held Feb. 23 at the Springfield Art Association, where cash prizes were awarded to the winners.
“Abe Welcomes All” is a light-hearted depiction of Abe tipping his hat to welcome visitors to the capital city and surrounding areas. You can see he has something for everyone. With so many sites, festivals, events and great food it’s no wonder he wears such a tall hat!
