The District of Sparwood is excited to announce the opening of the 2021 Street Banner Program call for art. This program is designed to showcase the work of local artists and beautify the community with selected art pieces to be printed and displayed on aluminum banners. The banners will be hung on utility poles in key locations throughout the community for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Artists from Sparwood, the Elk Valley, and the Columbia Basin area are invited to submit artwork that falls within the scope of heritage, environment, connection to the community, and love of Sparwood. Submissions will be evaluated by the Street Banner Advisory Group and Sparwood Council.
Each artist may submit up to two pieces, using any medium for consideration.
Artists of selected pieces will receive a $500 honorarium and have their art printed on banners and showcased on the District of Sparwood website. The submission period will close on February 19, 2021 at 11:59 pm MST.
The 2020 banner selections are currently undergoing design and fabrication and will be placed on poles this spring.
