ENCINITAS ARTS ALIVE BANNERS 2010 UNVEILED TOMORROW
Join the Downtown Encinitas Mainstreet Association tomorrow, February 20, 2010, for the unveiling of the Arts Alive Banner Project at the old Cabo Grill site on La Costa Avenue and Coast Highway 101. This year marks the 11th year of the banners. Originally there was 25-30 pieces of art and has grown to over 100 over the past years.
These banners are created by local artists and hung on lampposts on Coast Highway 101 from Leucadia down to Cardiff until May. Each year these banners are auctioned off in May and the proceeds are split 50/50 between the artist and the three presenting groups which are the 101 Artists Colony, Cardiff 101 Chamber of Commerce and Leucadia 101 Mainstreet. This year the auction will be held on May 23rd at the Cardiff Town Center. The minimum bid last year was $150 each. They are one of a kind original pieces of art done by amazing local talent.
Take a look at the amazing talent from last years banners.
Photos will be published after the unveiling! Hope to see you there!
