New Banners Show Off Schuylkill Beauty

POTTSTOWN PA – A new set of “Art On The Trails” banners currently hanging outside the offices of the Schuylkill River Heritage Area, 140 College Dr., features artworks from the organization’s Scenes of The Schuylkill show held in 2015, it announced in a Friday (July 22, 2016) e-mail newsletter.

The Heritage Area partnered with the Montgomery County Planning Commission and Creative Montco to create the new banners, just as it did for a similar first set that featured scenes from earlier art exhibits. The agency said it was grateful for the county’s effort to bring “these lively, colorful banners with beautiful art to our trails.”

The first set of banners originally were hung along the Schuylkill River Trail in Norristown, and later were moved to The Perkiomen Trail in Schwenksville to add even more color there, according to the e-mail.
