The Banner Project

For decades, residents of Yellow Springs have engaged in activism, often taking to the streets to demand social change in support of critical issues related to fighting racism, sexism, LGBTQ rights, and for environmental justice. To honor this activist spirit, the Yellow Springs Arts and Culture Commission presents a lamppost banner series on Dayton Avenue and Xenia Avenue representing submissions from community residents of protest posters used during demonstrations over the years.   

We wish to thank all the participants and the Village of Yellow Springs for their support of this project.
