About the project

The Tourism Banners showcase local artists. Their artwork presents authentic and original depictions of Yukon, reflecting a vibrant and exciting place.

The artwork of the 2020 banners creatively show how Yukon is an unparalleled place to visit, and highlight the territory's cultures and wilderness. They are displayed outdoors at visitor attractions and along roadways.
