Arlington Public Art

Arlington Public Art
The program is aimed at young people in grades 6 – 12 to promote and encourage development in the visual arts and to provide an opportunity for youth to participate in temporary public art projects in Arlington. 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. Now in its fourth year, the Youth Banner Initiative invites teens to submit designs relating to a specific theme to be digitally reproduced on vinyl banners and hung on light poles along Mass Ave. in Arlington Center. The previous years’ banners are repurposed into beautiful and useful totes, available for purchase at Artbeat.
