The banners in the front of our sanctuary are a collaborative project of the Geneva Art Team. They were designed and painted by Kate Austin. Cam Anderson built the frames and Anton Vermaak engineered the lighting.
The banners are made of acrylic paint on high-density spunbound polyethylene (commonly known as tyvek), backlit with LED lights.
Discussion of the banner project dates to January 2022, when the Art Team began dreaming of a project to highlight a season of the church calendar which could expand to compliment the changes of the church year.
The team hung the first banners for the project in Advent of 2022, and
is planning subsequent banner designs for the rest of the church year.
