Arts Commission Seeking 2022 Festival Logo
Newtown Cultural Arts Commission (NCAC) has a grand idea: Members are already seeking the art that will represent next year’s arts festival.
The 2022 Newtown Arts Festival has been scheduled for September 16-18. The festival celebrates the arts in the region with a weekend of music, art, dance, theater, crafts, food trucks, and a beer and wine garden.
NCAC is hosting a competition seeking next year’s festival logo. The winning art will represent the festival on posters, T-shirts and advertising.
Deadline for submission is January 10. The artist whose design is selected will receive a $1,000 prize. Visit newtownartsfestival.com for details.
The cultural arts commission, the sponsor of the festival, will also be reaching out to artists who have previously worked with the commission or who have been awarded grants from the commission.
On hiatus in 2020 due to COVID-19, the festival roared back this year with a record number of artisans, attendees, and sponsors, according to organizers.
