Join the Art Guild of the Delta for the 3rd Annual Banner Up! event sponsored by City of Brentwood Economic Development, City of Brentwood Arts Commission and Art Guild of the Delta (AGD).
The program provides local artists with the opportunity to create public art on 58 vinyl banners that are hung throughout Brentwood’s downtown during the months of June, July and August. The banners, all painted with original designs, will be on display at Oak, First, Second and Chestnut streets, as well as City Park. They will then be showcased at the Brentwood Community Center Center, 35 Oak Street, during September, for the public to enjoy. A gala benefit auction will be held September 27, at the Brentwood Community Center from 6-9 p.m. The Brentwood Library Foundation has been selected as the recipient of 50-percent of the silent auction proceeds.
There are still a few blank banners available for artists interested in participating. Banners can be picked up at the Delta Gallery, 2485, Suite C, in The Streets of Brentwood. Deadline for artists to return their completed banners to the gallery, is May 26, 4 p.m.
The AGD is a local art organization based in Brentwood and founded in 2013 as a non-profit organization with the purpose of building a network of artists to work together to promote and inspire creative influence amongst themselves and their community. AGD provides scholarships to art students at Los Medanos College, provides art classes to the community through the Delta Gallery, and provides a means for local artists to display their art.
