Hoisington Pole Banners
In 2005, the Hoisington Main Street Inc, HMSI, contact us to commission 14 signs down main street. The project was open to sponsorships for each light pole. Families, businesses, and corporations all teamed together to make this project possible to be included in the Original Art Banner Project. The theme for the designs consisted of wildlife or history of the Cheyenne Bottoms Wetlands. The project opened up on the annual Labor Day celebration and by the end of September over 30 banners were sponsored.
The project expanded past downtown main street to include the whole Hoisington Main Street which intersects the new created Wetlands and Wildlife National Scenic Byway route. The main street business district includes he fine art series of wildlife while past the district is the history section. Along the scenic byway intersection is the introductory series of signs. A total of 62 hand-cut banners were commissioned with more being opened up along the business side streets. The project won the State Governors Main Street Award. The project is being pushed beyond state level to national and international level. If you are traveling near the area, please feel free to stop by.
