Creating Festival Banners Since 1981

As an artist, a woman who loves to sew, and a recent resident of Boalsburg, I was so happy to see that State College had a wonderful Festival of the Arts with a yearly banner contest.  In the first few years, I entered in the “General” category, but after being hired as a graphic artist at Collegiate Pride, I entered in the “Professional” category.  I’ve participated in the banner contest since 1981.  When the Arts Festival adopted its “juggling jester” logo, I decided to use a jester in all my banners.  Since then I’ve been challenged every year to come up  with a new theme using a jester as you can see in this display.  Most of my banners have a mirror image on the reverse side with a few exceptions.
