A lot of people have noticed that Artie Nash recently replaced the tattered "Bring Back the Bards" banners with one large banner. So we asked Artie what gives? Here's what he said: "Well, streamlining the message, and consolidating the banners. But mostly just keeping some fresh paint in rotation, and switching to a weatherproof banner for the winter. The first ones were hanging so long they'd begun to disintegrate. This one is oil on vinyl canvas so it'll be there awhile. This one was contributed by a nyc artist named brian cunningham."
