Kicking off the 2015 Cotton District Arts Festival in Style!
This year's poster was designed by Paige Cannon, a local woman who grew up in Starkville, attended Starkville Academy, and graduated Mississippi State University with a degree in graphic design in 2011.
When asked what being chosen as the artist behind the official artwork for merchandising, such as posters, postcards, t~shirts, etc. for this year's festival meant to her; Paige replied that it's a bit of a "sensory burst", like the poster itself, winning this contest felt like everything that the Cotton District Arts Festival means to her personally. From the sights of all the artwork and vendors present and smells of sizzling food to the sounds of the entertainment and music and tastes of all the local restaurateurs' foods, the Cotton District Arts Festival always showcases the best and brightest, the edgiest and more traditional, a lil something for everyone.
Couldn't have said it any better, Paige; congratulations!
