New Summer Banners Installed in Downtown Victoria

Downtown will soon be more colourful with the installation of the new 2013 summer banners. The City's summer banner program showcases local artists and reflects the vibrancy and creativity of Victoria.

Starting today, 500 banners will be installed on downtown lampposts. Installation is expected to continue over the next few weeks and be completed by the first week of May.

The festive banners will complement downtown streets and will feature colourful designs by local Victoria artist June Haynes. The artwork was inspired by June's paintings of Victoria created while painting “en plein air”— a French expression which means to paint outdoors.
