Cedar Rapids (KWWL) -- Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival unveiled its official 2011 artwork Tuesday. The artwork was designed by Dan Alpers, an employee of Yellow Book, as well as a freelance graphic designer.

"Dan's artwork will be the artistic focal point for the 28th Freedom Festival – including the annual Freedom Festival button, schedule brochure and other communications," noted Janet Wilhelm, executive director for Freedom Festival. "His artwork captures the family-friendly feeling and atmosphere of Freedom Festival's more than 100 annual staff-produced and affiliated events."

Alpers' winning design features a family of five superimposed against a background of stars and stripes and dazzling fireworks. A two-time Freedom Festival artwork competition winner, Alpers also submitted the winning artwork design for Freedom Festival 2008.

Alpers lives in Cedar Rapids. For his winning design he receives $500. Dates for Freedom Festival 2011 are June 12 through July 4.
