Yachats Banner Project
Now in its third year, the Yachats Banner Project will hold their annual auction and artist celebration October 5th, from 5 PM – 7 PM in the Yachats Commons. Beverages and delicious treats, catered by the Drift Inn will be available.
Each spring local artists volunteer to design and paint banners. This year the theme is “Where Edges Meet.” Banners are displayed along Hwy. 101, from June through September. On the first Saturday of October, they will be auctioned off raising money for the Helen West Arts Education Fund and the Yachats Chamber of Commerce. The Helen West Fund supports community and school arts programs and projects and is named for artist Helen West, who lived in Yachats until her passing in 2016. The Yachats Banner Project was started by the Friends of the Yachats Commons Foundation, and is now sponsored by Polly Plumb Productions. Artist Mike Guerriero coordinates the project, prepares the banner canvases, and paints the pastel backs containing the Yachats lettering.
This year’s auction will be held on October 5th from 5 until 7 in the Commons Building in Yachats. The silent auction will end at 6:30 pm sharp. More than 30 banners will be on display. Visit the banner auction and view the banners up close. You just may find yourself bidding for one of these beauties. For more information or to view the banners in advance of the auction visit www.pollyplumb.org. Polly Plumb Productions is a tax-exempt 501 (c) 3 organization that produces and supports diverse, artistic, colorful, whimsical, musical and intelligent arts and cultural programming.
