Banner coordinator Mikaela Etter works on one of the colourful street banners which will be displayed around the community this year. There are 150 spots for this year’s banners.

Artists create street banners

Artists of all ages are creating street banners which will be displayed around Summerland later this spring.

The Summerland Community Arts Council has once again opened its Banner Studio, promoting the Street Banner Project.

The community is encouraged to help beautify the streets by painting a banner.

Mikaela Etter, banner coordinator, supervises and helps complete the banners. She expressed amazement at the amount of talent shown by the children who participated this year, some as young as six years old.

“They’d zone out and stay for hours,” she said.

There are 150 spots for the banners.

Etter said they almost have a full stack of new ones, which means some of the older banners which have been used for several years can now be replaced.

As residents and tourists enjoy looking at the colourful hand painted banners adorning the streets this summer, all will be able to appreciate the talent that Summerland has to offer.
