CORONADO, CA (October 25, 2021) The Coronado Cultural Arts Commission invites local artists to submit images of original artwork for the “2022 Celebrating Coronado Artists” banners series.

Banners will be displayed on Orange Avenue in Coronado April, May, and June in 2022. Applications are available online at CoronadoARTS.com or at City Hall. The application deadline is January 21 at 5 p.m.

Art may be images of original paintings, mixed media, photography, ceramics, sculpture, fiber art, and graphic art. Images should be suitable for viewing via a banner format along the Orange Avenue Corridor. The Commission is seeking submissions from a broad range of media, styles, and genres of local artists. All artwork selected will be juried and artists who are selected will be notified by early March. If selected, the artist will sign a release for use of the artwork on the banners as well as on CoronadoARTS.com for publicity purposes.

Artwork must be submitted as high-resolution jpegs. Final banners will feature the images printed in full color on double banners (two banners hold one image). The approximate size of the artwork on the banner is 60 x 92 inches. In addition, the artist's name and/or signature will be printed on the banner. Fifteen new artists will be selected to participate in the banner display. Artists who were selected in the 2021 class will not be eligible to apply this time as their banner will be displayed for a second time in 2022.
