Poster Unveiling for The Grove - Live on the News

A fabulous party was held last night in Miami to unveil the poster for the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. It attracted celebrities, socialites and politicians with excellent coverage on the local news channels. If only all art fairs could do this kind of PR to attract the attention to their upcoming events. Interestingly, the poster designer is Guy Harvey, a well-known nautical artist, and not a participating artist as I believe it has been in the past.

The Grove continues to evolve as a master blend of commercialism and culture and changing clientele. Here's hoping the promotion brings to the event what the artists need: an interested art buying crowd to enjoy the entertainment, food, bayfront location, weather and fine offerings of the main attraction, the art.

Here's the story from the Coconut Grove Grapevine: http://coconutgrovegrapevine.blogspot.com/2011/01/this-years-arts-f...

 

They also have a poster unveiling at St. James. Do you know any other art fairs that do this?

I probably can get you in as my assistant so you can save some of that $50.

The one thing about the Grove, they always get atleast one tv network as  main sponsor which guarantees good coverage.  

Now if it didn't cost me $50 to go to the festival two days, I would be happier.

They do have the highest quality art in SE Florida.

My favorite pic is the one with Monty Trainer flanked by the screen print guy and the president of Guy Harvey Art.
