The Las Cruces International Film Festival (LCIFF) Creative Team confirms January 24, 2017, for the official unveiling of its 2017 official film festival poster.
The unveiling will take place at the Cutter Gallery located at 2640 El Paseo Rd, Las Cruces, NM 88001 between the hours of 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
The 2017 poster is being created and realized by Jud Wright. Having called Las Cruces, New Mexico his home since 1976, Jud Wright and his wife Anna Pérez-Wright have owned and operated Del Valle Design & Imaging as well as Justus Wright Galeria for more than 30 years. Jud has been an artist since his early youth. He is an accomplished illustrator, painter, and graphic artist. New Mexico’s beauty and cultural diversity inspired Jud to translate these emotions to his artwork. His hope is that you feel the same passion for his work.
“We couldn’t be happier to have such a fantastic artist participate in our community’s film festival. Jud not only inspires but has a wonderful perspective on local artistry. For the future, it is my hope that we can enlist the creativity of other local artists as our film festival grows and unfolds into further successes. Keeping the local flavor and supporting our hometown businesses, artists, and students is essential to a successful event and the growth of our community,” explains Dr. Michael Evans, marketing and communication director. “This year’s event is bigger than we could have imagined. Great things and people are coming to Las Cruces.”
