Take a stroll down the Pearl Street Mall and notice the new lamp pole banners created by the talents and imagination of 57 budding artists from Whittier International School, Casey Middle School and Boulder High School. This year’s inaugural theme is “What I love about Boulder”. Designs include images of tubing on Boulder Creek, the iconic Boulder Theater, play areas along the Mall and much more. Mediums used to create the banners range from collage to water colors, pencil art, and photography.
The banner project is produced by the Downtown Boulder Business Improvement District - who based the idea on a similar banner tradition in Palm Springs. The three schools (in closest proximity to downtown Boulder), as well as the Boulder Valley School District and Photo Craft Imaging graciously agreed to help make this happen - along with a generous grant from the Boulder Arts Commission. The banners will be on display through mid April.
