Two Rivers Important Avenue seeks artists for summer time 2021 banner show

Two Rivers Main Street is looking for artists for banner projects

Two Rivers Main Street, a downtown not-for-profit revitalization organization, is looking for artists interested in having their art on display on Washington Street this summer.

The organization said in a press release that the art will be printed on banners that will be hung on the poles at the intersections of Washington Street from 15th to 21st Streets.

The project was carried out in Central Park in 2019. According to Two Rivers Main Street, the move of the banners to Washington Street is “an opportunity for more artists to get involved and get their creations more visible.”

“This is an opportunity for artists to show their work to the thousands of people who visit downtown Two Rivers each year for festivals, concerts and more,” the press release said. “Artists young and old are encouraged to take a canvas and create their entry.”

Interested artists can pick up their canvas at the Basil Ishkabibble Art Gallery, 1612 Washington St., Two Rivers. Seeds N Beans Nature Store at 1813 Washington Street, Two Rivers; or at the Two Rivers Main Street office in Two Rivers City Hall.

There is a $ 25 entry fee for adult artists and a $ 5 fee for students.

Finished artwork must be returned to one of the locations listed in this article before March 29th. The guidelines are online at tworiversmainstreet.com.

28 art works will be on display on Washington Street this summer. The winning pieces will be exhibited in Basil Ishkabibble’s art gallery from the beginning of April.
