2014 Fine Arts Poster Reception

The new Britt Festivals’ Poster for the 2014 Season was unveiled on Monday, June 2 at a reception on the hill. Jerry Simon, the artist, described his inspiration for the design to an attentive audience. 

Simon explained: “It is a Festival of so many interesting kinds of music and is depicted through the musicians in the center of the poster and the musical instruments that break out at the edges. The color is rich and vibrant and the players are passionate about the performance. In the central focus is the banjo, an instrument strongly associated with America’s past through folklore and the rural working class. But everyone, in each style, in their own way, is making beautiful music.”

The poster is now on sale at the Britt offices in Medford: $35 for a signed poster and $20 for an unsigned version.

Then students acted out scenes from the upcoming musical to a delighted audience.  Wendy Stanek directs the play, and her students sang “Bare Necessities,” and “I Want to Be Like You.”  Tickets are still available at the door only at $3 per person or $8 per family.
