Congratulations to Mississippi University for Women graphic design major Chelsea Mitchell for creating the Columbus Arts Council’s new logo.
This logo will represent the CAC on all marketing and publicity, effective January 2013.
Mitchell, 23, is originally from Metropolis/Brookport Illinois.
Her artist statement: "There is much more to an arts council than just a gallery. It is not a museum to be disconnected from and merely `visited’ but a place meant to be a part of the everyday life of the community not only as a hub for artistic means, but as a tool for the education of art itself.
“It is because of these qualities that this logo has come into existence. A representation for the building blocks of art, not just squares but an emphasis of the basics portrayed through the ever cemented primary colors. Just as a book written in English is only a rearrangement of 26 letters the entirety of the color spectrum is but a combination of these three hues. The ABCs of art in a sense."
