Tenino Metal Banner Art
The City of Tenino Creative District and the Art, Recreation, Culture and History (ARCH) Commission announced that were creating a new public metal banner art project and holding a design contest.
“The goal is to provide imagery that represents the history, culture, recreation and/or natural beauty of Tenino. Celebrating what makes a place special both in the past and in the present makes a strong community and a great place to visit. We think 23 pieces of public art will help us do that” said Mayor Wayne Fournier. Subsequently, the commission received 63 submissions. 19 designs that spoke to Tenino's unique culture were chosen. Four additional designs that the commission felt were essential were created collaboratively by Donna Mayo, Jessica Reeves-Rush & Tammy Schroder Towers. Those pieces were: The Salish Basket, Tenino Depot Museum, Wooden Money, and Bucky the Beaver.
