Tourism Rossland has announced the winning pieces for their recent Call for Artists bid.

Tourism Rossland said they are pleased to announce that the following artists submitted winning pieces and they are:  Charlene Barnes,  Stephanie Gauvin, Louise Drescher and Jenny Baillie.

Deanne Stevens, from Tourism Rossland, said the board had a difficult job picking only seven pieces from the 58 which were submitted.

The banners are part of an overall signage strategy which Tourism Rossland has been working on over the past few years.

The funding for this project comes from the Resort Municipality Initiative which Tourism Rossland administers on behalf of the City of Rossland.

They expect that the 28 banners (21 for downtown and 7 for the RED Neighbourhood) will be installed in the next week or so, if weather permits.
