A design by Daniela de Castro Sucre has been selected for the Festival Poster for 2017. Daniela was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. Daniela has been painting since she was 7 years old. She is currently studying Graphic Design at Pensacola State College and has been the recipient of numerous scholarships and awards. Daniela is proficient in realistic oil painting, but she considers herself a multimedia artist. Through her studies, Daniela now has a newfound interest for graphic design.
Daniela moved to the United States in 2006 to attend high school, and a few years later moved again to Madrid, Spain. While in Madrid, she met her now husband, Tyler Long, who grew up in Pensacola. They both relocated to Pensacola in 2015.
The design is turned into a limited-edition poster, t-shirts, and other items which will be available for sale at the festival. The poster and shirts have become local collector’s items. The only way to get them is at the Festival.
Each year, the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival Committee awards grants to local nonprofit organizations in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties for community arts projects. Applications are due by December 11, 2017.
