Inspired by public poster art of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the mid-20th century, the ATHENS BANNER PROJECT is a collaboration between the AAAC and the Athens Downtown Development Authority (ADDA) to promote messages of resiliency, unity and support for our local culture and community.
Congratulations to the Athens Banner Project artists:
- Marvella Castaneda
- Jess Dunlap
- Maximos Salzman
- Elinor Saragoussi
- Klée Schell
130 banners will be printed (26 copies per artist) on 30” x 24” vinyl and given to each of the 130 storefronts in downtown Athens, GA for display during the summer of 2020. The selected local artists will receive $350 each for their original art banner designs.
