Banners are flying

The selected submissions for the 2012 Banner Project have been hung and are being proudly displayed in downtown Fernie.

The selected submissions for the 2012 Banner Project have been hung and are being proudly displayed in downtown Fernie.

An overwhelmingly positive response during the banner launch event on April 19 at The Arts Station left only three banners left for sponsorship.  More banners were sponsored this year than any other since the project’s inception thanks to the talented artists and generous supporters in the Elk Valley.

The three final banners can be sponsored for $100 each. After being on display for one year on Second Avenue then for another year lining the highway, the banner belongs to the sponsor.

“They make a great addition to a garden, patio or anywhere else your heart desires,” said Roxanne Beaton, Administration Assistant at The Arts Station.
