The Centre City Banner Program

New artworks welcome people to the city’s core

The Project

The Centre City Banner Program engages local artists to create artwork for banners displayed on light poles and bridges leading into the city core, acting as gateways to Calgary’s downtown and cultural district.

Artists develop original artworks that consider the different characteristics of Calgary, and celebrate our cultures, communities, histories, geography and diversity. Artists are selected by an independent jury. Display periods last for approximately one year.

For over a decade, the banner program has transformed these gateways into open-air galleries for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. For more background on the Centre City Banner program, see the City of Calgary’s website here.

Applications for the Centre City Banner Program, 2023 – 2025, are now closed. Learn more here.
