The banners were manufactured by a local company and installed in early May bringing colour to the street through the voice of community. A wind storm last winter damaged the ageing banners at Moberly Arts & Cultural Centre making room to replace those with the same look of the main Street banners. In this way, the two sites, while a kilometere away from each other, are connected through a visual marker of this 2 year community engaged art process called, Here & There.
The banners on main street in front of the Sunset Community Centre were in dire need of replacement. It made so much sense to extend the Here and There project outside the facility doors and onto the street. Artist, Pat Beaton anayzed the site and came up with these fabulous prototypes from the community artworks. She chose artwork that represented the historical, social and natural aspect of the Sunset Community.
