GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The 2013 Festival of the Arts poster was unveiled Thursday morning.
It’s a unique, colorful, and intriguing take on the annual start-of-summer arts festival. The poster is a fun interpretation of Festival, which has been a Grand Rapids tradition for 44 years.
Abigail Bradley was chosen as the artist for the piece. She is from Grand Rapids and has attended Festival for many years. She also has a vast knowledge of poster media and is a four-time ArtPrize participant.
Signed and unsigned Festival posters will be sold at the Festival store on Ottawa Avenue during Festival weekend, June 7, 8, and 9, in downtown Grand Rapids.
The event features six performance stages, art activities for children and adults, a juried art show in the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts, art for sale by local artists, and food booths operated by area nonprofit organizations.
