Public art banner competition ongoing

The City of Claremont is hosting its annual Public Art Competition, which is a project of the Art in Public Places program, according to city manager Tony Ramos’ Dec. 13 weekly update.

The competition is open all Claremont residents of all ages and includes Claremont school and Claremont College students.

“Enjoy Claremont” is the banner theme and those selected will be given canvas banner material to paint their original work, according to the update.

The artists who are selected will receive $250 and have their banner be displayed in the downtown Claremont Village in April.

The designs and forms must be submitted by Jan. 8 to the Alexander Hughes Community Center, 1700 Danbury Rd.
