The 2017 Coconut Grove Arts Festival poster was unveiled at a party on Thursday night. As was the case in 2011, this year's Arts Festival poster is by prolific Florida artist Guy Harvey, known for his fish images. This is the poster for the Festival, which runs February 18 through 20, this year.
The event always starts with a live shot on the Channel 6 news, here Roxy Vargas, reporter, does the count down on live tv for the poster unveiling, which always takes place at the Sonesta Coconut Grove. Mayor Tomas Regalado and Commissioner Ken Russell were both part of the fun.
