When Marblehead merchants started making plans to sponsor four big festivals along Main Street this season, they turned to Sande Measimer, who teaches art at the Danbury High School and Middle School, for some special help.
Grant McCallum, of Jodie McCallum & Company Fine Art Gallery, and secretary of the Marblehead Merchants Association, asked Measimer if any of her students would be interested in designing logos for the festivals. The idea was to involve young people in helping to promote their community.
Taylon Molnar, 15, who will be a high school sophomore next year, jumped at the chance. He’s an honor student and like everyone else in his family has a love for art. He submitted caricatures of four old-fashioned barbershop quartet singers and they were selected as the logo for Marblehead’s June 16 “Olde Fashioned Days” festival. Another caricature of a man alongside a variety of garage sale items will be the logo for the July 14 “Your Street to Main Street” festival — a village-wide garage sale along Main Street.
