Creating the Dory Days Posters

This story is an excerpt from an interview collected as part of the Launching through the Surf: The Dory Fleet of Pacific City project. The on-the-spot interview was conducted on the beach at Cape Kiwanda during Dory Days 2012. In this story, Carol Miles Johnson, Pacific City artist and dorywoman, describes the inspiration and process involved in the design of her series of Dory Days posters, which she began creating in 2004. In the background, Doug Olson can be heard announcing the beginning of a rowing demonstration featuring traditional double-ender dories, as well as the popular fish fry. Both of these events are Dory Days traditions.
