The Sunshine Coast Arts Council has launched a new series of Banners to adorn the streets of Sechelt. These banners can be found on Dolphin St. between Inlet and Trail and in front of the Arts Centre on Trail at Medusa. The art work is the creation of eight different Sunshine Coast artists: Kim LaFave, Jen Drysdale, Leif Kristian Freed, Elaine Seepish, Kristjana Gunners, Morley Baker, Ian MacLeod & Donna Balma. Each of the eight banners is double sided showing off the works of two different artists. The “tails” that are attached to the bottom of the banners display the Sunshine Coast Arts Council logo along with directional arrows pointing up Dolphin St. towards Trail and on Trail towards the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre.

We hope the banners not only illicit visual interest, but will help direct people to the Arts Centre.

We want to thank the following local Sechelt businesses who have sponsored this project:

  • Sechelt Dental Centre
  • Sechelt Insurance
  • Sunshine Float
  • Backstream Physiotherapy
  • Kien Giang Restaurant
  • Gibsons Building Supplies

The banners will remain up year round. A competition will be held next fall to choose the participating artists for the 2019 Boulevard of Banners.
