Fine Arts, Fine T-Shirts

What’s a Fine Arts Festival without fine art?

The Downtown Merchants Association wondered too.  So — to promote next month’s event — they organized a t-shirt design contest for students in Staples’ design and tech class entered.  The results (below) are worthy of Westport’s artists colony past.

Winners received cash from the Downtown Merchants, gift certificates to Bobby Q’s — and the chance to see their work worn all over at the 36th annual Westport Fine Arts Festival in July.
