Each annual festival highlights a specific country, and that nation's cultural heritage. Naturally all of the other mainstay cultural experiences, including several ethnic restaurants, cultural dance teams, musicians, and vendors are eternally present.
My role centers around the event's promotional pieces, the annual event icon, programs, t-shirts, and posters, by visually illuminating the most intriguing elements of that year's featured culture.
At every festival, Rose State graciously supplies me with a booth and large stacks of posters to sign, and I'm always amazed by the lines that form. So many kind and happy "fans" stop by, (many are annual regulars) all of which I'm always thrilled to greet, sign and take photos with.
