A display of 25 Festival of Arts commemorative posters feature works from 1941 to the present and include designs by Laguna Beach graphic artist Bill Atkins.
The show can be seen through Oct. 3 in the third floor gallery of the Wells Fargo building, 260 Ocean Ave.
Atkins, who exhibited at the festival in 1976 and 1977, designed eight of the commemorative posters currently on display. Since then, he has worked as a graphic artist and taught design and illustration.
Atkins is also known for developing graphic art campaigns to promote and support fund raising efforts for Laguna Art Museum and AIDS Services Foundation in Orange County and helping create the revised whale tale license plate for the California Coastal Commission.
