Ralston announces an art contest for the city to recycle the letters from the arena marquee into sculptures

A unique art project is underway to revamp “Ralston’s Gate.” The city’s arts and creative district wants to reuse the letters from Ralston Arena’s marquee. Artists have the opportunity to use those letters to create a sculpture that will replace the current sign at the corner of 72nd and Main streets. “Our hope is that this will help draw attention to our community’s goal of becoming a metro destination to experience arts and culture while enjoying our small-town charm in a city environment,” said Chloe Hamel, Ralston Arts and Creative District board member. The first credit union was announced as the new naming sponsor for the arena in December 2021. The winning artist will receive $3,000. Interested artists can learn more here.
