Outdoor Banner Exhibition

June 12 at 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

A new set of colourful street banners adorn the lamp posts along the Rotary Centre for the Arts Commons and along the Art Walk in Kelowna’s Cultural District as part of the Outdoor Banner Exhibition program.

Over the four years of this partnership between UBCO and the City of Kelowna, 56 works of art have been added to this space, and we are excited to launch the latest banners in the series. All past year’s banners will also be on display for this event.

For the second year in a row, four banners will be presented using augmented reality (AR) allowing three-dimensional animations to appear on top of the printed image. These works are part of the “Press Play!” research project that provides undergraduate students the opportunity to pitch and pursue a self-directed project in research-creation, digital design and media production. The Press Play! project is sponsored by the UBC Okanagan Office of the Provost through the Excellence Fund, and is in partnership with the City of Kelowna, the AMP Lab at UBC Okanagan, and the SpokenWeb Project.

This partnership program between the City and UBCO’s Faculty of Creative & Critical Studies was originally launched in 2020, with the first set of banners installed in the spring of 2021, to create new opportunities for local artists amidst pandemic-related facility closures. This banner project continues as a unique and engaging way to expand access to exhibition space in the city.

Please join us for this celebration planned for June 12 starting at 4:30 pm along the Artwalk, outside of the Rotary Centre for the Arts.
