- About COTA
COTA thanks you and welcomes you home!
Tom is the creator of the exquisite, mixed-media, shadow-boxed pieces of art pictured here. Both of them were created exclusively for COTA this summer. Top, for COTA's 2012 poster and accompanying print promotions; and below, for the Bob Dorough Duets CD.
The "back story": Tom (with his brother, Todd) was among the handful of artists/musicians who launched COTA in 1978; he designed four of our first five posters and our logotype. What a trip it's been! Tom now lives and works in New Orleans, where he oversees three studios/galleries, and exhibits his jewelry and sculpture at 250 galleries in the USA and abroad.
The two original, three-dimensional, framed pieces that Tom created for COTA this summer have now been donated by him to us.
When you see Tom, back home at this year's Festival, thank him (and ask if he'll autograph the great poster that you may purchase at the COTA Booth).
