Huang explains for inspiration for the poster: Delray Beach is one of the fastest-growing cultural centers in South Florida. Everywhere you look, a fusion of the arts and business is evident. In this image, she wanted to capture an iconic piece of Downtown Delray and show a different perspective of Pineapple Grove of someone exiting through the archway. A painting merged with the sky symbolizes the individual leaving Pineapple Grove, while daydreaming about the art they experienced in Delray’s local galleries and cultural hubs. This design aimed to highlight how the arts are an essential part of the city’s culture through the Pineapple Grove archway leading to the Arts District and how the Delray Affair celebrates this aspect of the city’s culture, fusing arts and business through the Delray Affair each year. As the Delray Affair approaches its 60th year, she wanted to celebrate what makes the city stand out among others – and its how Delray Beach embraces the arts in all of its facets.
