AGD Coordinates Banner Up!
Welcome to the first annual Banner Up! event. This is a community program sponsored by the City of Brentwood, Economic Development Division, City of Brentwood Arts Commission and coordinated through Art Guild of the Delta.
A Call for Artist went out in April and resulted in 68 originally designed and painted banners being hung in downtown Brentwood for the summer. They are featured on the light poles along blocks of Chestnut Street, First Street, Oak Street, Second Street and beautiful City Park.
The banners will fly thru Labor Day and be enjoyed during the Farmer’s Market season, Starry Night Concert series, Harvest Time Festival, and Art, Wine and Jazz Festival. The grand finale will feature a Gala Reception and Auction on September 29th. This free event will be held from 6 to 9 pm at Brentwood Community Center, 35 Oak Street, Brentwood. The artists will receive 50% of the selling price and the remaining funds will be donated to The Brentwood Library Foundation to be used for public artwork being planned for the new Brentwood Library.
