CALL FOR BUTTON ARTISTS
Annually we have an open invitation for local and regional artists to submit a new unique design for the current year’s event.
CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED AS OF AUG 19. THANK YOU TO ALL THAT SUBMITTED.
The pin buttons are a First Night ® tradition that boasts new art designs each new year. Each year buttons are offered to our thousands of attendees to wear during First Night Hartford to show holiday spirit and to have as a commemorative keepsake item. You can order online beginning November 15, 2018.
Congratulations to First Night Hartford 2019 Button Artist Winner, Lacy Martin!
Lacy is a Connecticut based, self taught artist who graduated from The Art Institute of Charleston with a concentration in Graphic Design. Developing skills as a Designer, Lacy finds inspiration in the juxtaposition of balance, composition and color in the expression of her work. Lacy is moved by the details of nature, thinking metaphorically and the curiosity of her internal world. Every piece created is a different moment in time, a different relationship, a different experience laced with freedom and expression.
