Silver anniversary brings art to skies of Solana Beach

SOLANA BEACH — In honor of the city’s 25th anniversary, the 2011 Arts Alive banners are now flying high on the streetlight poles along Coast Highway 101 and Lomas Santa Fe Drive.
This year’s banner theme, Celebrating Solana Beach, highlights the city’s anniversary set for July 1. These colorful banners were painted by students, professional and future artists, as well as a few Solana Beach moms and dads. The imaginative images and visual messages about Solana Beach are resourceful and entertaining. Creators recommend a stroll along the Coastal Rail Trail on Coast Highway 101 or a drive up Lomas Santa Fe for the chance to see all the unique banners.
The Arts Alive Banners will add color and visual interest to the city throughout the summer and then will come down for the Arts Alive on the Coastal Rail Trail event. This year the CRT event is scheduled for Oct. 2; so mark your calendar and plan to attend. All the 2011 Arts Alive banners can be viewed on the city website at
The Arts Alive Program is a popular and successful art and cultural community program sponsored by the Solana Beach City Council and hosted by the Public Arts Advisory Commission.
The banners can also be viewed online at
