Talented artists with a penchant for mullets should listen up: the Gulfport Historical Society (GHS) needs your talent! This year, the city’s annual birthday bash has some new events in store, but at least one thing will remain the same: the annual mullet toss.
Along with a new and improved birthday bash, the Society wants to design a new shirt for the city’s 103rd birthday. Artists should submit a design building on the theme “Toss Your Mullet in Gulfport!” no later than July 31. Mullets depicted in the artwork must be physically accurate and the overall design should be clean, eye-catching, and, according to the Society, funky.
“We want something that’s definitely ‘Gulfport’,” GHS President Miki Vaughan says. Please e-mail print-quality (at least 300 dpi) designs to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to the Gulfport Historical Society, care of the City of Gulfport 2401 53rd Street South, Gulfport, FL 33707.
The winning artist will receive gift cards for O’Maddy’s, Pia's and PJ's Oyster Bar.
