CherryArts is hosting a kick-off celebration for the festival on Wednesday, June 29, at Hotel Clio. Tickets for that event are available here.

This year’s commemorative festival poster features Light Born in Spring by Colorado painter Noelle Phares, “a meditation on the changing landscapes of modern Colorado as the human footprint reaches farther and farther into the Rocky Mountains, and a gentle suggestion to keep some places wild.” The festival poster is available for purchase at CherryArtShop.org and on the event site. A limited number of signed editions are available.

This year’s festival is free and open to the public, as always, and tickets are not required.
