Stay Safe! Salida COVID-19 Poster Project
State Safe! Salida is a small ad hoc committee waging a local art & poster campaign in an attempt to get the word out that wearing a mask in this time of COVID-19 is in everyone’s best interest. (Making the decision not to wear a mask makes a potentially life-threatening decision for those around you. You can share the virus even if you have no symptoms.)
We are looking for artists interested in contributing images for the posters. These will be featured on sandwich boards placed around town. For more information, please visit our website and hit the “contact” link. The focus of our project is Salida but all Chaffee County residents (all ages) are invited to participate.
Because the City has asked us to work through local businesses for placement, we are also looking for businesses willing to host a sandwich board in their right of way.

Please help spread the word - see the Call for Artists and Businesses below:
Chaffee County Artists: Creative Contributions to the “Stay Safe! Salida” Poster Project
Chaffee County residents (all ages) are invited to submit original artwork to the “Stay Safe! Salida” COVID-19 MASK PROJECT. Our group is working to help in the effort to get the word out that wearing a mask in public in this time of COVID-19 is in everyone’s best interest. Your images will be featured in posters mounted on sandwich boards around town and on the “Salida Stay! Safe” website. We have a limited number of boards, and we would like to use work that most clearly expresses the message, “Wearing a mask in public helps everyone.” Deadline to submit: July 31 (possible extension—check website), but we will be placing the posters as we go.
For details (and to see current artwork), check the website: courage4america.com, or write: [email protected]
Salida Businesses: Host a sandwich board for “Stay Safe! Salida”
“Stay Safe! Salida” is a privately funded group receiving input from members of the Salida Council for the Arts and other local groups. Our project is helping in the effort to get the word out that wearing a mask in this time of COVID-19 is in everyone’s best interest. We are looking for businesses willing to host our posters (on sandwich boards). The City has asked that we work with local businesses for placement. The posters feature the work of local artists and display a simple message urging people to wear a mask. We will supply and help look after the board & poster, and will be available for questions.
