The inspiration for this years
Fiesta Poster came from the 1948 reenactment, by then El Presidente John T. Rickard and members of the Old Spanish Days organization, of Don Gaspar de Portola’s visit to Santa Barbara in 1769. Local artist Russell Carter created the original artwork depicting the celebration in 1769 at Santa Barbara’s Old Mission.
The official poster for Old Spanish Days 2015 is an adaptation of a 1949 poster from Seville, Spain redesigned by Erin Graffy to capture the flavor of this year’s theme: Fiesta Romantica in Santa Barbara. Assisting her were art historian Diana Vandervoort and PhotoShop consultant Dirk Brandts.
