The Morro Bay Harbor Festival (MBHF) committee has announced the winner of its poster art contest for this year’s festival. After receiving seven outstanding art entries, the committee chose the submission from Wendy Wilkins Mitchell as the winner. She received $250 for her efforts.
Mitchell’s painting was inspired by a photopraph by Cayucos photographer Danna Joy Dykstra Coy. “Wendy truly captured the beauty of that photo,” Dykstra Coy said. “I was so pleased it inspired her to paint it.”
Mitchell’s painting will be featured on this year’s poster and all print advertising for the festival.
The 37th annual Morro Bay Harbor Festival will be held on Saturday, Oct. 6, on the Embarcadero. Live music, fun exhibits, food, beer and wine will be available, plus plenty of children’s activities and much more. Admission is free.
