If you have walked along the streets in Chattanooga’s downtown, you have probably noticed the banners that hang from various street poles displaying the different city districts.
As part of River City Co.'s Downtown District Banner Program, the banners are meant to beautify and promote the area as well as highlight its revitalization and progress.
Now, the company is seeking a request for qualifications from local artists or designers to be a part of redesigning the banners.
- Submissions will be open until Friday, Sept. 8
- Top artists will be selected on Friday, Sept. 15
- One artist will be selected for the project on Friday, Sept. 29
Note: The artist selected will receive a $1,500 stipend for their artwork.
River City Co. is also seeking community support through donations for the replacement of the banners + will match dollar for dollar (up to $20,000) toward donations for the program.
