Traverse City Art Banner Project
The Traverse City Art Banner Project is the brainchild of former NMC Art Department Chair Paul Welch, who, along with a committee of artists and art supporters, has been seeking empty walls on downtown Traverse City buildings and asking the owners of the buildings to allow them to become outdoor galleries with reproduction banners of art by regional artists, former NMC art students, and imagery from the collections of the Dennos Museum Center, who is a collaborative partner with the Banner Project.
The art banners are hung for several months, during which the committee and the Dennos work to select new images and find additional buildings to become outdoor galleries for the works. The project is supported by private donors who provide the funds for printing and installation of the reproduced art works by Britten Studios.
