Centre City Banners – Curtis Van Charles (2022 – 2023)

A series of banners by artist Curtis Van Charles

The Project

Artist Statement:

“One of the most exciting things about Calgary is its proximity to some incredible outdoor places. These banners take the viewer on the ultimate road trip. The day begins in a prairie landscape just outside Calgary in the early morning. The scenery changes from one banner to the next as the sun crosses the sky and the Rocky Mountains in the background draw nearer. The journey eventually ends above the tree line in the evening under the northern lights.”

The Centre City Banner Program:

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