2016 Festival Poster Presented!
The Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival is proud to present the poster for its fifth anniversary celebration on Sept. 23-24.
For this milestone event, Summer Stewart has captured the essence and spirit of the festival that has put her home town on the map for Blues Music lovers from around the world. The artwork exudes and radiates the blues, soul, and the untamed wild earthiness that is Louisiana.
Stewart, an art teacher for nearly two decades as well as an artist herself, said the work was inspired by the BBHF venue, Cassidy Park, and by the Bogue Lusa Creek that normally gently flows through the shady green expanse.
In March, the creek flooded and raged through the park, wreaking such widespread devastation that people questioned whether or not it could be rehabilitated in time for the last weekend in September. Organizers rolled up their sleeves and called in assistance...and the team succeeded.
Stewart said she immediately thought of the flood when she was asked to do the BBHF 5 poster.
"I knew I wanted the subject to be a blues artist playing the guitar on the pier of the small cabin in the park, surrounded by the flooding waters of the creek," she said.
