Banners on Parade, the community art project, succeeded in enhancing the views on Placerville’s Main Street last year. Plans are underway for this annual public art display to again hang from light poles from late May to mid October.
Artists, craftsmen, designers, architects and art students — either individually or as a group — are invited to submit their banner designs for this year. Organizers are encouraging the use of a wilderness theme in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the signing of The Wilderness Act by former President Lyndon B. Johnson. More details can be found on artist invitations.
Artist entries must be submitted by Saturday, March 15.
Following the exhibit, the banners will be auctioned off at the Oct. 18 Art and Wine Festival, with a proceeds benefiting Placerville Art on Parade and other local charities.
To be a part of this dynamic public art show visit placerville-downtown.org/pdf/2014BOPInv&App.pdf and print and fill out the artist invitation and artist application pack.
