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 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 2019 class will not be eligible to apply this time as their banner will be displayed for the second time in 2020.

Artists must be 18 years or older and must meet the Cultural Arts Commission definition of a local Coronado artist. A local artist is anyone who meets one of the following criteria: 1) Lives in Coronado 2) Works a minimum of 20 hours per week in Coronado, 3) Owns property in Coronado. Four banners will be reserved for Associate Artists who meet two of the three following requirements: 1) Graduate of Coronado High School 2) Has a body of Coronado‐themed work (minimum of 10 images), 3) lived in Coronado for seven (7) years or more.
