The 24th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters FestivalPresented by Regions Bank is thrilled to partner for the ninth consecutive year with Watkins College of Art, Design & Film for its festival artwork. Select Watkins students competed to create a concept that captured the essence of the event, and this year, Chris Robertson’s design has been chosen to represent all Tin Pan South marketing, passes, posters and banners.
The competing students were all enrolled in department chair Dan Brawner’s Illustration I class. Robertson is an artist and writer from Alabama currently living in Nashville, Tennessee. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from The University of Alabama and is currently a junior in Graphic Design at Watkins.
