Holland, the Beauty's in the Detail Public Art Project
The Newest Avenue Banner Project
Each of the 60 banners in this series focuses on a detail of Holland – natural, architectural or iconic. The artists used a variety of media; pastel, watercolor, oil, pencil, oil pastel, collage and photography. Viewers will enjoy the challenge of figuring out what the art represents and where the details are located. These banners will appear at the beginning of summer for the next 5 years!
