Own a piece of Boulder’s history

BOULDER – Now you can own a piece of Boulder’s history.

The Boulder Sesquicentennial Celebration Committee is selling the limited art Sesquicentennial banners presently hanging on Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall.

The colorful banners, designed by local artist Steve Lowtwait, are being sold with first-come, first-served orders. Banners will be delivered to buyers “as is” as soon as they come down in early fall.

Fewer than 100 of these original art banners are available, and your purchase is a tax-deductible donation used to fund citywide Boulder 150 events.

There are three sizes of the banners available, and they are priced: 4-foot banner: $75; 9-foot banner: $100; 14-foot banner: $125.

There are six different designs: Hotel Boulderado, Flatirons, Pearl Street Mall, CU Old Main, Chautauqua Auditorium and Historic Neighborhoods.

To order your banner, download an order form from the Boulder Sesquicentennial Web site at www.boulder150.com, or call Sesquicentennial Fundraising Chairman Bob Yates at 720-888-2283. Please give your choice of size and first, second and third choice of design. Also indicate if you are willing to purchase a different size if your first choice sells out.
