Several months ago artists here in town were ask to submit art that depicted our city, for a banner project.
Many of these were chosen to be made into canvas banners that hung all around the downtown area for a few months. After they were taken down, the Arts and Culture Board presented them to a brand new school that will be used as a high school next year. We were invited to view the new school, and the hanging banners. I think it looks great, and such a good idea. My banner, above, is all about the many ducks that live over on the banks of the San Gabriel River. When we go to visit, they always look like they are having a parade. It is a collage, and if one of them looks like a pineapple, it's because it was, before it became a duck!
