Coast Salish inspired community banner (Submitted photo)

Applications for Community Banner Program now open

Deadline for submissions is 4:00 pm, February 28

The Town of Ladysmith and the Arts Council of Ladysmith and District have partnered up for the Ladysmith Community Banner Program.

Submissions are now open for the 2020 Public Art Banners program. The main purpose is to bring beauty and community identity to Ladysmith through public art. Banners will be displayed in three district zones of the downtown core.

This year’s theme is dedicated to global plant health, protecting plants, and protecting life. Designs should be imaginative, original interpretations that represent Ladysmith’s small town charm, coastal community life, and diverse cultural heritage.

Deadline for submissions is 4:00 pm, February 28. Three cash prizes of $500 will be awarded to banner artists.

Registration is now open. Artists can apply online at ladysmithwaterfrontgallery.com/bannerapp.
