Heart of the Arts Festival Logo Unveiled
October is National Arts and Humanities Month. This year will be extra special as Polk Arts Alliance presents its inaugural Heart of the Arts Festival. Fondly referred to as HotArts, the Heart of the Arts Festival showcases the arts and cultural events, exhibitions and happenings all around Polk County. In addition to arts events and exhibitions throughout the month, Polk’s arts and cultural organizations are widely represented at the First Friday event on October 7th in Lakeland. Stop by Arts on the Park, Explorations V Children’s Museum and the Polk Theatre to say hello and to sign up for a chance to win fabulous arts prizes.
Polk Arts Alliance is truly grateful to the Polk Advertising Federation (AdFed) for adopting the Polk Arts Alliance HotArts Festival as a beneficiary of their precious gifts of time and talent. The awesome logo was designed by the expert graphic artists at Smart Creative. Woohoo and thanks to Smart Creative for creating a beautiful artistic image for the Festival.
