Next year’s 325th anniversary of the founding of New Rochelle will offer many opportunities to look back on and celebrate our rich history and diverse culture. But the unifying image on anniversary publications — and on banners that will line our streets — will be a forward-looking, contemporary, bold logo designed by New Rochelle resident and artist Deborah Haley.

Deborah’s logo won a design competition sponsored by the New Rochelle Council on the Arts and adjudicated by several prominent local artists. She says she was inspired by the city’s diversity, commitment to the arts, economic growth, and Huguenot history.

For more information, bookmark on the City’s website, which will be updated throughout the next year as plans for the anniversary celebration develop.
