New arts banners to appear around the city

The work of local artists will be on display on new banners around downtown Fredericksburg. About 100 banners will appear on Caroline and William streets in the next few days. (view all the banners here)

The banners are a project of the Fredericksburg Arts Commission and the city’s Department of Economic Development and Tourism.

The four featured artists are: Bill Harris, Johnny Johnson, Paula Rose and Betsy Glassie. The banners were designed by Adam Desio.

The artists were selected because their work visually represented three diffrerent attractors of the downtown district: dining, shopping and the arts.

The banners will be hung around the city’s Arts and Cultural District, which was created in December 2010.

Two of the banners are themed around dining, two around the arts and one around shopping.
