The Owen Sound Art Banner 2019 Launch Date Event is June 2nd at the Queen’s Park Bandstand on 848 1st Ave West from 12 Noon to 4pm. It is situated across from the Owen Sound Public and Tom Thomson Art Gallery Library. We look forward to seeing you there.
The Owen Sound Art Banner Project is an annual street art exhibition showcasing the works of local artists on street banners displayed along Owen Sound’s harbour walkway and behind city hall. Artists from Grey and Bruce Counties are invited to submit their work each year.
Patrons are invited to sponsor these banners for $100
Since 2009, the Owen Sound Art Banner Project has been proud to celebrate the talent and success of our local art community by showcasing their works on professionally produced banners throughout Owen Sound.
The Owen Sound Art Banner Committee is a group of local volunteers actively building broad support and participation in the project. In addition to adding artistic value to the downtown street scape, this exhibition increases tourist interest and civic pride in Downtown Owen Sound and the surrounding area.
The banners are funded by art patrons, who receive them at the end of their public display period. This process keeps interest high, and creates an annual stream of fresh images.
