JACKSONVILLE, Ore. — The Britt Festival is unveiling its Fine Arts poster of 2014 tonight at 5:30 p.m. on the Britt stage. This year’s artwork is a collage with acrylic paint by Jerry Simon of Ashland. The poster is the 30th in a series celebrating Britt through visual arts.
The reception is open to select Britt members, and will also honor winners of the Jacksonville Elementary spring musical poster competition, through Britt’s partnership with the school. Posters are created in preparation for the school’s annual musical, and winners are chosen at each grade level, along with an overall grand prize winner. The 2014 production is Disney’s The Jungle Book Kids, and it will be performed on the Britt stage on June 5 at 7:30 p.m.
This piece of artwork will be used as the playbill cover this year, and on other marketing pieces throughout the summer. To see the new artwork, watch tonight at 6:00 & 6:30 p.m.
