LAKE CHARLES, La. (December 18, 2018) – The official 2019 Mardi Gras of Southwest Louisiana poster is now available for purchase following its unveiling at the Mardi Gras of Southwest Louisiana News Conference.
The poster, created by local, renowned artist Candice Alexander, is available in a variety of sizes and the artwork is also available on a multitude of specialty items such as t-shirts, coffee mugs, keychains and more. The poster can also be customized for specific Mardi Gras krewes.
Alexander’s design was inspired by vintage Mardi Gras costumes she and her team rounded up. The costumes were put on a live model and she was photographed in a portrayal of a queen reaching out to the viewer. She took away some of the likeness in the portrait to give the queen more stoic, universal features and added her own artistic flair to the design. Each print is original with its own custom glitter embellishment.
Prints, custom frames and specialty items are all available for purchase at Candice Alexander Art Studio located at 900 Ryan Street (first floor of the Charleston Hotel). Items can also be purchased at www.candicealexander.com.
Alexander has partnered with Mardi Gras of Southwest Louisiana, Inc., the nonprofit organization responsible for coordinating more than 20 community Mardi Gras events and parades each year. She is donating 25 percent of each print sold to the organization to aid in supporting their mission of enhancing the cultural and economic growth of Southwest Louisiana through its annual festival.
