Tourism Rossland on the lookout for downtown artists

Tourism Rossland is seeking artwork for the new downtown decorative banners.

Tourism Rossland in association with the City of Rossland is seeking artwork for the new downtown decorative banners. The concept is to feature local artists on these banners which reflect our beautiful community.

The banners will be approximately 24” wide by 48” long, printed on canvas and be mounted to the new light poles. The banners will also include the Rossland mountain scape at the bottom which is approximately 6” in height (see draft picture). Artist’s names will be included on the banner.

A one-time payment of $300 would be made to the artist and would provide Tourism Rossland and the City of Rossland with the rights, in perpetuity, for reprinting the banners.

Tourism Rossland is looking to purchase several pieces at this time.

It is expected that a second round of banners will be created in the following year with a subsequent intake.

Final selections will be made by the Board of Tourism Rossland.

Funding for this project is from the Resort Municipality Initiative.

All artists interested in being included should make their submission to deanne@tourismrossland.com by Friday Oct. 5 at 4 p.m.

All art must be available in a high-resolution digital format, but may be submitted in low-resolution for the selection process.

For more information please contact Deanne Steven at 250-231-1247
