Kutztown Celebrates the Arts with First Friday

FirstFriday_posterThere’s nothing quite like a community who supports the arts. Be it featured photographers, plein air painters, or local musicians, it just seems to brighten the whole town. So of course I was thrilled when I learned that Kutztown would be sponsoring a First Friday series, beginning on April 5. The hope is to pair local businesses with different artists and musicians and offer extended hours, pop-up galleries, and live music from 5-8pm.

Kutztown Community Partnership turned to me to design the promotional materials, and so I came up with a fun logo featuring distinctive parts of everything Kutztown — the music, the art, the atmosphere, and of course the heart of the town.

I encourage you to mark First Friday in Kutztown on your calendar, from April through October 2013 and check out www.keepinitkutztown.com for upcoming community events.

    I’ve been browsing the web, looking at how Kutztown is expressed online. I really like your poster work for the KCP.

    My PR Writing students are currently writing business profiles of restaurants, stores, salons, etc. within walking distance of KU. I’m planningto get them all published as a one-shot town and gown newsletter.

    If you have any leads for us, or feedback, kindly keep in touch.

      The KCP office is the best resource if you’re researching downtown businesses. If there is anything specific that I can help with, please let me know.
