A little while back we told you that Festival of Banners was coming, and now it’s here! Submitted designs for this year’s theme – “Pop on Parade” – were judged, and winning designs were chosen. But it’s right about now that the action is really underway as the selected artists are beginning to work on their original, hand-painted banners in the SBMA studios. With only two months to go until the banners are on display in downtown South Bend, our Festival of Banners participants are busy bringing their pop art visions to life.
From now until August, we’ll be checking in with not one, but three of our Festival of Banners participants, to see what it’s like to take transform their 4″ x 6″ submissions into banners. The dynamic, creative members of the Kanczuzewski family have agreed to let us look over their shoulders as we bring you an inside experience of this great community-based program.
