In June of 2018, the CAC hosted a Logo Design Contest allowing local and national artists to submit a logo design.
“The Magnolia logo has served the arts council well for the past 31 years and we are excited to move forward into a new generation,” stated Executive Director Emily Lightner.
At the CAC’s annual meeting, held on June 14th, over 25 logos were displayed. The Arts Council members and the community were able to vote for their favorite logo. The top two logos were then presented to the Cultural Arts Council’s board of directors for voting. It was recently announced that the CAC Logo Design Contest winner is Whitney Constien.
“It was a difficult decision to make and a lot of thought and research went into the new logo,” commented Lightner.
