The days are spinning by, and the First Fridays Annual Poster Contest deadline looms as March 23 is quickly approaching.
First Fridays 2018 season’s theme, “Mill Town Mosaics: Cultural Heritage of the Quiet Corner” has artistry woven right into the name. The First Fridays series runs on the first Friday night of each month from May through October and will take a closer look at particular cultures: Polish-Americans on May 4, African-Americans on June 1, French Canadian-Americans on July 6, Greek-Americans on Aug. 3, Native-Americans on Sept. 7, and Scandinavian-Americans on Oct. 5.
Artists of all ages are encouraged to create a 16” x 20” full color poster (portrait orientation) to represent the Mill Town Mosaics and all of the cultures that gathered in northeastern Connecticut. It should include the entire season’s theme.  For info: visit or
The winning poster will be reproduced as the cover of the First Fridays program, which will have thousands of copies printed and distributed throughout the region and at the events. The winning artist will be awarded a $250 cash prize and will be featured in the program. Entries will be accepted at WINY Radio, 45 Pomfret St., Putnam until the deadline of March 23.
