The City has displayed 25 banners featuring various works of art on streetlight poles in the downtown area as part of the City’s annual “Art Banner Exhibit” that is organized by the City of West Chicago along with members of the City’s Cultural Arts Commission.
This special exhibit recognizes selected artists who had submitted their artwork as part of the initial call for entries for the project, and had their work selected by this year’s judge to be part of the installation. Each year a theme is chosen for artists to base their work from; the 2022 theme is “Renewal”.
Now through September, residents and visitors are asked to choose their favorite artwork to decide the winner of the People’s Choice Award for the exhibit.
The winner of the People’s Choice Award will receive their banner free of charge, and all other banners will be sold with all proceeds being used for future art programming.
The City will announce the winner the week of September 26.
