New home, new poster for 2013 Mayfair
Predicting great art, great weather and a great future for the festival, Mayfair Festival of the Arts officials revealed its 2013 poster.
"Art Without Limits," with white letters amid a blue sky, the new poster is like cloud-based graffiti, according to a news release from Mayfair.
This year marks the first time the festival will be held on the grounds around Ag Hall on the western end of the Allentown Fairgrounds.
Officials say everything will return, including the artist market, multiple stages for performing arts, KidSpace and food vendors.
But the new location offers additional benefits: indoor space and free onsite parking.
The new indoor space allows for an additional category of artists who can only display their work inside.
“The community has complained about the weather and the parking at Mayfair Festival for years. We have addressed these issues, and done it in a way that expands our offerings. Our tag line, ‘Art Without Limits,’ is truly what Mayfair Festival of the Arts contributes to our community,” says Arlene Daily, executive director.
The 2013 poster was created by Lehigh Valley-based and award winning graphic artist Christian Weber.
“I loved attending Mayfair Festival of the Arts throughout my childhood, so being chosen to work on the poster art this year is a true honor,” Weber said. “To be a part of the Mayfair history and help the Festival grow into an even stronger arts event is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of.”
Mayfair Festival of the Arts 2013 will be held Friday through Monday, May 24-27.
The festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Monday (Memorial Day) the hours will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
