Have you seen the awesome banners downtown?
Last month, Saline Main Street, working with the Saline Area School Art teachers, invited Saline students to create banners that show “What I Love About Saline.” 187 banners were created, and a panel of three local artists chose the top 80 to be printed and displayed on our downtown light poles in April and May.
To celebrate the artwork of all 187 students and to honor those whose work was chosen, Saline Main Street will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, April 16.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 16, 2014
TIME: 5:30 PM
PLACE: Four Corners, Michigan Avenue and Ann Arbor Street
The public is welcome to join the students and their families as we honor these artists and celebrate all there is to love about our City. Then, after the ribbon cutting, you’re invited to stroll downtown and enjoy our outdoor art gallery.
And you can see all the original artwork on display at the Saline Library.
Oh, what a night! Our very first Taste of Saline was such fun! We have so many to thank, and we apologize if we miss any of you who helped in some way. There were many, many people who helped make this event a reality. First and foremost, we want to thank our Co-chairs, Ginger Winter and Jeanette Swartz. The hundreds of hours of coordinating this event over this past year showed their commitment to help make our community a great place! Our businesses owners worked together to ensure that everyone had a good time and the musicians, restaurants,artists and volunteers from the Saline area (including the amazing National Honor Society students who helped greet at each location!) gave their time and talents to help make the event the success it was! We would also like to thank our sponsors, because without them, we could not celebrate our community through the many volunteer-driven events and activities that we do throughout the year. When you see them, please thank them too!
Stewart Francke will be the featured artist at Saline Main Street’s Music Under the Arch on Thursday evening. Gleason-award winning author, Craig Werner, says of Franke: “Whether you’re coming at (his) music from rock or soul, you can close your eyes, relax and let it wash over you. When you come back to the world, you’ll feel energized and renewed.”
A music critic once wrote that Francke sounds like “Jackson and James Brown(e) were brothers.”
The opening act tonight is Caitlin Ashby and Alana Hollis who recently won the Saline High School Talent Show!
