Create the next City Hall Banner!

With the third installment of PVDFest, we hope to create new opportunities for local artists to participate in the festival. For the past two years we have used headliners to design the banner hung up on City Hall. This year we are opening up the opportunity to local artists, to put your mark on PVDFest! Enter to showcase your work on the front of City Hall, right in the middle of downtown Providence.

  • The banner will be 17 ft.(w)  x 10 ft. (h).
  • Any medium is acceptable; however the end result will have to be a digital file. If the work is not created digitally, it will have to be scanned or photographed.
