Coconut Grove Arts Festival Poster 2011 by Guy Harvey
Congratulations to the Coconut Grove Festival Committee and to Marine Artist Guy Harvey for this year’s Festival Poster.
South Florida’s favorite Art Festival in the Grove is introduced by one of South Florida’s favorite Artists. This title for Guy Harvey is testament to the tens of thousands of people who wear his prints, enjoy his murals and sculptures everyday for years. After a summer of devastating pollution in the Gulf that has threatened the whole coastal regions of the State, the Coconut Grove Art Festival has chosen Harvey’s marine life symbols as emblematic concerns of us all. Environmentalism has long been a traditional content of Florida’s artists since the pioneer days of Audubon. Harvey’s colors, details and movement of his subjects are admired and totally sympathetic, his style is beautifully executed and acceptable. He has inspired many other artists to use the beauty of Florida’s marine life and fauna, leading the way as an environmental Fine Artist.
