Nye Beach Banner Auction set for Nov. 12

Funds raised support youth arts learning

Walking around the narrow streets of Nye Beach in Newport, it’s hard not to notice the creativity of area residents — banners hang from light posts like beckoning sentries, inviting residents and tourists alike to watch for the next piece of original artwork at the next street corner. Now in its ninth year, the Nye Beach Banner Project not only celebrates local artists, it beautifies a coastal neighborhood while raising funds to support arts education and permanent public art through the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. The banners are sold each year at a lively auction held during the fall.
