THE PROJECT Building on the success of the past 4 years, the Fort St. John Community Arts Council has partnered with the City of Fort St. John for 3 years (2018, 2019, 2020) to continue to create original banners by local artists.
One local artist will be selected to create 4 designs for 2019 that will be professionally transferred onto quality street banners to be displayed during the summer of 2019 and through the winter of 2020. The banners remain the property of the Arts Council and will eventually be transformed into other uses such as tote bags.
