2017 Arts Festival poster unveiled at party
It was like old home week at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival poster party. For a good many years, I seemed to be on every committee in town and at Thursday night's event, so many familiar, friendly faces showed up, some I had not seen for a long time. As was the case in 2011, this year's Arts Festival poster is by prolific Florida artist Guy Harvey, known for his fish images. This is the 2017 poster for the Coconut Grove Arts Festival which runs February 18 through 20, this year.
The event always starts with a live shot on the Channel 6 news, here Roxy Vargas, reporter, does the count down on live tv for the poster unveiling, which always takes place at the Sonesta Coconut Grove. Mayor Tomas Regalado and Commissioner Ken Russell were both part of the fun.
