I KNOW A PLACE: Annapolis Royal
Driving along the highway, there’s plenty of natural scenery to take in, but there’s also some new public art on offer to motorists travelling across the Valley floor. Annapolis Royal has a new community ID sign and it is the result of a collaboration between two local artists: designer Steve Slipp commissioned the original artwork from Ron Lightburn.
“I created an acrylic painting that provided the basis for the vector art that Steve used to complete the design” explains Ron. “Some colours were changed for the sign, which was manufactured with vinyl adhered to metal.”
The finished sign is now visible to anyone travelling to Annapolis Royal via Highway 101. This isn’t the only local artwork gracing the roadways. “I also created the artwork for the Berwick community ID sign, and a couple of others” says Ron. There couldn’t be a better way to welcome visitors to the artistic communities of the Annapolis Valley!
