Artists are invited to submit original artwork for consideration as the official anniversary logo, which will be used on the website and all promotional material for the celebration. Artwork should represent Yoshi’s history in the Bay Area (10 years at Jack London Square and 35 years in the Bay Area), the world-class Jazz it presents and its Japanese heritage & cuisine.
