(Ocean Springs) -Mississippi artist, Elizabeth Huffmaster is this year’s winner of
the Blue Moon Art Project associated with the 45th Annual Peter Anderson Arts
& Crafts Festival presented by Blue Moon held on November 4 & 5, 2023.


The state-wide art project brought to Mississippi through the Peter Anderson
Arts & Crafts Festival accepted applications from August through October with
submissions being turned in to the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce-Main
Street-Tourism Bureau.


The 2023 winning piece, “Altogether Now”, will be on display in the Ocean
Springs Visitors Center until it appears on signage, souvenir cups, and more
next fall. The promotions will be in celebration and preparation for the 46th
Annual Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival 2024.


The announcement of the winning art project was made on Sunday afternoon
of the festival, along with the announcement of the People’s Choice Award.
The attendees voted and recognized Adam Plitt of Gulfport for his piece “Two
Moons” as this year’s People’s Choice Award winner.


Now in its 14th year, the Blue Moon Brewing Company via FEB Distributing
Company has been partnering with the festival to inspire the Mississippi
community in the arts. From their original slogan “Artfully Crafted”. Blue Moon
has had a passion for the arts and has used its product to create successful
artfully inspired projects throughout the United States continuing in Mississippi
still today.
