Banner designs sought for Nanaimo festival

The deadline to enter the 25th-annual Festival of Banners approaches.

In April every year, professional and amateur artists create one-of-a-kind works of art to brighten Nanaimo’s streets.

To participate, sketch out a design, register and if the design is approved, artists will be invited to the painting site at Nanaimo North Town Centre to paint a full-size, full-colour banner.

Deadline for entries is April 11. Pick up a form at the gallery or download one from www.nanaimoartgallery.com.

The banners hang on lamp posts around the city from May to October. Banners are then auctioned off to the public.
