Although this year’s 2nd Street Festival has been cancelled, the poster design from neighborhood artist Unicia Buster will still be released this fall.
“Now Ms. Buster’s list of honors includes being selected to design the poster for the 32nd Annual 2nd Street Festival that celebrates the culture of historic Jackson Ward, at one time the center of black commerce and entertainment.
Traditionally, a painting done by the selected artist was turned into the festival’s poster. But Ms. Buster is designing a quilt that will become the festival’s poster. She also will be using her graphic design skills for the poster’s layout”
