2017 Downtown Banner Project "The Beauty's in the Details"
Artists - take your first step in participating in a brand new public art project that will benefit the programs of the Arts Council and add vibrant, creative artwork to downtown Holland.
The theme for this project is Holland–the Beauty’s in the Detail. As artists you see the world around you differently and we want you to show us Holland–up close– through your eyes–a Holland that is mysterious, enigmatic, undiscovered! We are looking for graphically bold and vibrant images of the details that often go unseen. These details can be in nature, in architecture, in iconic places or little-known corners.
We are asking artists to create artwork to adorn the avenue banners of downtown. The work will be photographed and reproduced in LARGE format on vinyl banners. This means your two dimensional art can be any medium. The 60 final banners will be displayed on light poles in downtown from June –through September for the next several years.
We are setting our parameters wide but have a few guidelines for acceptability. See attached guidelines for complete instructions but here are a few of the important ones:
