The West Hartford Public Library and West Hartford Municipal Parking are sponsoring an art banner contest.

By Ronni Newton

Unique banners are often on display along the light poles of West Hartford Center, and this summer the library and municipal parking divisions are sponsoring a banner design contest with the theme “Capture the Wonder of West Hartford.”

While past contests have often been a collaboration with the library’s children’s department or West Hartford Public Schools – last year’s theme was “My Happy Place,” and open to those ages 5 through 12 – this year the adults get to show off their creativity.

The contest is open to those 18 and older, and submissions should “depict the town’s unique character, vibrant places, and its sense of magic.” Portrait layout is preferred.

Winners will be chosen based on their creativity and relevance to the theme, and those designs will be turned into banners and will be used to decorate the light poles along South Main Street, in front of Town Hall and the Noah Webster Library.

Entries can be submitted through July 28, and must be brought to the Noah Webster Library Adult Reference Desk, 20 South Main Street. Digital entries (high quality JPGs, not larger than 20MB) can also be submitted by emailing [email protected].
