Banners celebrate arts

March 05, 2007

New banners that read "Celebrating 100 Years of Music and Art" have been installed by the City of Hagerstown around Public Square in downtown Hagerstown. The banners note the 25th anniversary of the Maryland Symphony Orchestra and the 75th anniversary of the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts.

The banners were financially sponsored by the Convention and Visitors Bureau. Creative design was approved by the MSO and WCMFA, and fabricated by Hagerstown's GS Images.

"We're very pleased to work with the City of Hagerstown, in helping celebrate two very important amenities for visitors and residents," said Tom Riford of the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau. "The Maryland Symphony Orchestra's 25th season and the 75 years of excellence at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts is something which our community can truly be proud."

The City of Hagerstown approved the banner's design, and work crews installed the banners as soon as the weather allowed. Visitors to downtown Hagerstown can spot the banners, hung high on light poles, along South Potomac Street near The Maryland Theatre, home of the MSO.
