Each year since 2016, teens living or attending school in Arlington have been invited to submit designs for banners. The Youth Banner Initiative encourages development in the visual arts and offers an opportunity for students in grades 6 to 12 to be part of Arlington’s public art programming. Funding is provided by the Gracie James Foundation in memory of Gracie James
, a talented Arlington High School student who found solace and joy in the arts.
Students will be notified at the end of December. Artworks will be printed on vinyl banners, and hung along Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington Center in the spring of 2021. Three students will be selected by the jury to each receive a $200 scholarship prize. New this year: People’s Choice Award to be voted on, tallied, and announced at the spring reception.
