Official Press Release:
The Verona Area Education Foundation (VAEF), in partnership with the City of Verona and Verona Area School District, is excited to announce the student artists to be recognized in the new City of Verona street banner program for East Verona Avenue. With the theme of ‘Hometown USA’, this inaugural project features art from nearly 40 district students from all grade levels. Students used a wide variety of mediums to highlight the community assets that make Verona a great place. 

The winning banners will be on display at the Verona Public Library through May 31 with a culminating celebration at the library on Thur., May 18th from 6:30-8pm. Banner installation along East Verona Avenue will occur in late May. A walking tour brochure will also be produced allowing residents to take a self-guided tour of the banners, and learn about the artists and the stories behind individual pieces. The walking tour brochure will be available on the City of Verona and VAEF website ( under district tab) and City website, as well as at City Hall and many of the businesses along the East Verona Avenue corridor.
