The Mercer Island Arts Council and the City of Mercer Island are inviting artists and graphic designers to participate in a design competition of street banners to replace the existing banners currently on display throughout the city of Mercer Island.

An Artist Selection Panel will select a collection of five designs from one participant that reflect the spirit of Mercer Island based on the theme “Island Icons.”  According to the competition instructions, “the set of 5 different designs should be distinctive and represent the unique spirit of Mercer Island” in five different areas: 1) Architecture; 2) Sculpture and Art; 3) Parks and Beaches; 4) Nature; and 5) Mountain-to-Sound/I-90 Connection to the US.

Submissions are due by Monday, May 21st, 2018; and the winning designer will be awarded $3,000.  For complete details, check out the City’s Call for Artists packet.
