Barryville Biennial Banners on the Byway Art Project
BARRYVILLE, NY — The Greater Barryville Chamber of Commerce is seeking artist submissions to replace the current welcome banners along the scenic river corridor of NYS Route 97. The new banners will debut Memorial Day weekend.
The artwork should pertain to the theme, “inspired by the community in which we live.” Artists are encouraged to include visuals influenced by nature, culturally-related, or other inspirations from our surroundings. Submitted works should be identifiable from a distance, as the banners chosen will hang 10 feet above the ground. There will be 20 banners chosen overall.
The submission deadline is Friday, April 26. To download submission forms and requirements, visit www.barryvilleny.com/banners.
