Calgary Stampede a World Famous Icon

"The 2005 Centennial Poster reflects the excitement, pride and vibrancy of today’s Stampede, while reinforcing our Western heritage. The first thing you will notice about the 2005 poster is that the layoutis a departure from the traditional approach. This reflects and underscores the fact that our organization can and is changing without impacting the underlying values, principles and traditions that have made the Calgary Stampede a world famous icon. The poster’s unique elements tell us about how the Stampede hasbecome a part of our community, just as our community is an integral part of the Stampede. Alberta artist Ken Dewar illustrated the Stampede poster for Alberta’s Centennial year. Ken has worked in Calgary for 20 years as a freelance illustrator for various advertising agencies and clients, andin the limited edition print market. Ken has done a number of military prints for both Canadian and American military and will be branching out into fantasy print market this year.
