CONGRATULATIONS, MEGHAN & JUANTA WOLFE!
Riverfest 2020 Official Artists Meghan and Juanta Wolfe have only been married for a couple years but art has always been at the center of their relationship.
The artists, both 28, live in Wichita, where he grew up. She was raised in Clearwater, and then moved to Wichita where she graduated from Wichita State University in 2013. A freelance illustrator and photographer, Meghan serves as the president of the local chapter of American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA), allowing her to focus on her passion of growing the design community in Wichita.
Juanta is a freelance muralist and a teaching artist for Arts Partners’ Generation STEAM program who is preparing for an exhibit of his work in April. Juanta’s love of street art, painting and drawing has inspired him to create murals throughout Wichita. He is most proud of his work on a community-driven multi-mural project in the South Broadway neighborhood where he grew up.
The artists are preparing for a collaborative show in June at The Workroom, and working together on an AIGA community project, a deck of cards designed by 54 Wichita designers. When they’re not creating, Meghan and Juanta also share a love for another art—brazilian jiu jitsu—which Juanta teaches, and their two dogs, Punkin and Skai, and cat, Medusa.
“We are ecstatic to represent such an amazing festival for our city, and become a piece of Wichita’s history,” said Juanta. “Riverfest is one of our favorite events, and we are filled with so much joy to see our artwork become the face of it this year,” added Meghan.
