City of Jacksonville Presents Commemorative Poster for 2011 Jacksonville Jazz Festival

City of Jacksonville Presents Commemorative Poster for 2011 Jacksonville Jazz Festival

The City of Jacksonville is proud to present the commemorative poster for the 2011 Jacksonville Jazz Festival.  Each year, the City of Jacksonville chooses original artwork that is converted into the commemorative poster and as well as other promotional pieces. More than 140 entries were received for consideration.

This year’s painting, “Drop’n the Groove,” was created by local artist Pamela Miller who uses bright, rich and bold colors to interpret music through shapes in a groovy place surrounded by palm trees and blue skies. Funky, flowing shapes hit the notes in this abstract painting.
