And then there was one.

Of the nearly 100 votes cast for the Uptown Arts Stroll poster contest, artist Edwin Ureña’s poster garnered a winning margin of votes cast by community members this past Mon., Mar. 16th.

“We had an amazing showing,” said Sandra García Betancourt, Executive Director and CEO of the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA).

Ureña’s entry will serve as the official design for all Stroll materials and collateral for 2015. His red and gold design depicts a female artist working before an aerial view of Northern Manhattan buildings, with the George Washington Bridge towering in the background.

A month-long showcase for the arts, the annual Uptown Arts Stroll is set to kick off in June.
