Get your art on...a banner that's part of our new downtown streetscape!
Fancy seeing your name snapping in the wind above the elegant new streets of downtown Rossland? Ooh la la. If so, Tourism Rossland has a deal for you. In association with the City of Rossland, they are seeking artwork for a series of downtown decorative banners. Says Deanne Steven, "The concept is to feature local artists on these banners which reflect our beautiful community."
The banners (a pdf of the specs is attached to this article) will be "approximately 24” wide by 48” long, printed on canvas and be mounted to the new light poles. The banners will also include the Rossland mountainscape at the bottom which is approximately 6” in height."
Chosen artists will see their names will be included on the banner as well. And if that's not incentive enough--there's money. "A one-time payment of $300 would be made to the artist and would provide Tourism Rossland and the City of Rossland with the rights, in perpetuity, for reprinting the banners," says Steven.
"It is expected that a second round of banners will be created in the following year with a subsequent intake. Final selections will be made by the Board of Tourism Rossland."
Funding for this project is from the Resort Municipality Initiative. All artists interested in being included should make their submission to email@example.com by Friday October 5th at 4:00pm. All art must be available in a high-resolution digital format, but may be submitted in low-resolution for the selection process. For more information please contact Deanne Steven at 250-231-1247.
