The Mayfest Poster's unveiling took place Wednesday evening at the OSU-Tulsa Helmerich Research Center.

The artwork is designed by Tulsa native and artist, Phil Cooper. According to the press release, he is a graduate of Tulsa University's Art School and works with his wife, Fonda, at Cooper Design.

Cooper has developed his own painting genre called, "Big Stuff" which takes ordinary objects and portrays them as larger than life.

"This painting signals the arrival of whopping good times at Tulsa’s International Mayfest. The vintage truck represents the many year’s that Mayfest has delivered outstanding art, food and music to Tulsa," says Cooper in his statement for the Mayfest release.

Posters will be available for purchase at the Mayfest office starting May 1.  The Mayfest office is located in the Harwelden Mansion at 2210 S. Main.

The original artwork will be sold by silent auction, with a “buy it now” option.  Bidding will take place at the Mayfest Invitational Gallery, located in the Williams Towers Lobby at 1 W. 3rd St.  Bidding will open at the Invitational Gallery Opening party on May 14 and continue through 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 18. To buy tickets to the Invitational Gallery Opening, call (918) 582-6435 or email comments@tulsamayfest.org.
