When asked what inspired her for the artwork for the 2017 T-Shirt, Clementina stated, “My inspiration for the Seafair design was engendered when I went to the 2016 festival. I was delighted with all the activities. The children were gathered around to watch the crab races. People were enjoying the variety of foods offered by vendors, and everyone was having a great time. I tried to include in the T-Shirt design as many events as I could, as well as capturing the vibrant colors of the booths and tents. Revealed in the background, are the carnival’s Ferris wheel and the newly refurbished giant blue crab, an icon of the Rockport-Fulton area.”
