About the Festival 2023 Poster
This year’s Festival 2023 poster was created by west Michigan-based artist Maggie Clifford-Bandstra.
Her paintings are nature-inspired abstractions, playing with uplifting colors and abstract shapes. Her work includes hidden symbols emphasizing our human connection to nature and our to reduce anxiety and escape the stresses of everyday life. As a child, her parents took her to Festival of the Arts, and she fondly remembers spending hours in the Glue-in tent. As a teen, she would wander Festival with friends enjoying the music, food, and friendship.
Clifford-Bandstra graduated in 2021 with an M.F.A. in Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design. She retired from Hudsonville public schools in 2020. She is currently an adjunct ceramics Professor at Hope College and works part-time at Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists Residency as the Manager of Retail Programming.
