Installed on street posts along Main Street in West Chicago’s historic downtown from May through September.
The project incorporates art from local and area artists on street banners that hang downtown from May through September. Artists from around Chicagoland are invited to submit designs based on an announced theme.
2017: Rails & Trails
Inspiration for the theme of the 2017 Community Banner Art Project, sponsored by the West Chicago Cultural Arts Commission, should be abundant for resident and area artists who are familiar with West Chicago’s history and natural beauty. Rails & Trails is the name of the spring/summer outdoor exhibit which will hang along Main Street within sight of actual rail lines and bicycle trails.
