This spectacular community driven program brings together artists from West Bend, the surrounding communities and schools to create an extraordinary outdoor gallery bringing color, fun and engaging imagery to West Bend.
We will have 30 total banners in 2023 that will need sponsors. They will be hung on the light posts of 6th Avenue from Main St to Walnut. The inspiring images will be displayed from May thru October on the streets and will be hang in the hallways at the West Bend City Hall until the 2024 Grand Gallery Opening for continued view throughout the year. Each banner will be listed in our custom brochures providing the Artist’s name, their description of the artwork and include the Award, Event & artist banner sponsors – Which could be you!
