Hurray, Plymouth Banners are here!


It's that time of year again, when local artists create banners to be displayed along Plymouth Blvd. in Plymouth, MN.

This banner was my contribution in 2007, and took 2nd place in their 1st annual "Plymouth Art-Banner Contest". Every fall since, Plymouth has displayed this banner along with other new and existing banners. The January/February '09 newspaper, "Plymouth News" also featured the banner in an article pertaining to the contest.

The piece titled, the"Yellow Sapling" represents the new trees the city has planted in the last years in the area to help preserve the beauty of our town. My intent for this piece of art was to show the serenity of nature. Plymouth has a lot of beautiful parks, gardens and nature areas throughout town for the public to enjoy.
