Congratulations to the Winner of the StreetFair Poster Contest!
Congratulations to Cole Williams who designed the winning poster for the 50th Annual StreetFair celebration. Cole, who has deep roots in the U District, said, “I’ve lived around the U District area for the majority of my time in Seattle, and have had the opportunity to explore the many beautiful parks, local eateries, and hidden gems. The U District Streetfair perfectly reflects the best parts of the community, bringing together friendly faces, diverse cuisines, and local arts and crafts that make for a lively spectacle. With this poster, it was not only my aim to capture the spirit of the fair, but to also represent the vibrant community that hosts it. It’s been a neighborhood that I’ve been lucky to call home.”
A few words from last year’s StreetFair Poster Contest winner, Grace Rajendran:
“I’ve worked in the U. District since I moved to the United States and I love the diversity, open-mindedness, and welcoming nature of the community. Here, I can enjoy cuisine from every corner of the globe, am surrounded by both natural and architectural beauty, and have met fascinating people from all over the world – from academics to artists. All of this is reflected in the Street Fair, which I’ve attended and enjoyed for the past several years. My poster represents the colors and vibrancy of the area during this season, with a folk art focus which reflects its inherent bohemian free-spiritedness. In this creative neighborhood, I’ve made lasting friendships and even discovered my own artistic side. Leaving behind an entirely different country and culture, I consider myself fortunate to have moved here to the University District – because it has truly made me feel at home. ” — Grace Rajendran
