The East Hampton Arts Council selected Jesse T. Elliott’s bright blue paintbrush stroke as its logo out of nearly 50 submissions, according to artist Kate Mueth, who presented the logo to the Town Board on Tuesday.
The contest, which started in May this year, was meant to find a logo for the council that would be a symbol of the energy of the arts community in East Hampton, according to Ms. Mueth.
“I just love it,” she said of Mr. Elliott’s submission. “It embodies all the arts … it’s really exciting, and we’re honored that he has given us permission to use his image.”
As the winner, Mr. Elliott will receive a $100 gift card to the Golden Eagle art store in East Hampton Village, and his logo will be used for the council’s public image and for use on its website and in social media.
Mr. Elliott is based in Greenport and has his own clothing collection called “WhiteWash.”
