Arts Council Northeast and the City of Hurst are pleased to welcome Gustafer Yellowgold for a free concert on July 14, 2017 at the Hurst Library 901 Precinct Rd.

Since his creation by Morgan Taylor in 2005, Gustafer Yellowgold has become an international phenomenon, acclaimed by The New York Times, which described Gustafer as “A cross between ‘Yellow Submarine’ and Dr. Seuss.” Entertainment Weekly praised “…The most infectious original songs. It’s like tapping into some pleasure center in the brain- both adult and kid…absurdly appealing.” A self-taught cartoonist raised on MAD Magazine and Marvel comics, Morgan Taylor began drawing what would become the Gustafer Yellowgold videos. Gustafer Yellowgold’s Show is a multi-media performance of live music, colored-pencil animations and storytelling. With its unique crossover appeal, the show has been the wild-card opening act for Wilco and The Polyphonic Spree. Gustafer has appeared in his own productions of Gustafe Yellowgold’s Mellow Sensation and Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock. Yellowgold’s Have You Never Been Yellow? and Gustafer Yellowgold’s Wide Wild World are NAPPA Gold Award winners and were honored by the Kids First! Film and Video Festival. “Mint Green Bee” from Gustafer Yellowgold’s Wide Wild World was a Grand Prize Winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. The Gustafer Yellowgold Arts Enrichment Program brings educational and creative workshops to children in libraries and schools. 

Through the MasterWorks Series, Arts Council Northeast and the City of Hurst present free performances on selected evenings throughout the year. The MasterWorks Series is designed to offer a variety of quality family entertainment to the community by utilizing the talent of local, regional, and national artists.
