WASHINGTON, DC---“What makes a good cover? It has to engage the viewer. It has to make them want to pick up the magazine,” says Todd Franson. “It’s also about balance. The image has to be strong enough to grab attention, but also hold up visually with text and a logo on it.” For six weeks, the Anacostia Arts Center will showcase a dozen of Franson’s favorite Metro Weekly cover photos, sans logo and text, in “Uncovered.” The exhibit also features ten richly detailed works by Scott G. Brooks, a world-class artist who has been illustrating covers for the magazine since 2011. [link]
