Current banners 

Beverly Main Streets’ downtown light pole banners have a creative new design, thanks to Beverly artist Andrew Houle. Each year Beverly Main Streets works with a local artist to design the light pole banners, which brighten up the downtown and provide sponsorship opportunities for businesses. Andrew’s design is a striking portrait of actor Adam West, known for his role as Batman. The banners are installed on more than 60 downtown light poles and include tags featuring the name of the sponsor. Now that construction is completed on Route 1A, the city has installed half of the banners on Rantoul Street and half of the banners on Cabot Street. 

Andrew Houle has lived in Beverly since graduating from Montserrat College of Art in the year 2000. While studying primarily illustration, a love for oil painting co-existed throughout his formative years, leading to a split body of professional work with a career in comic books and exhibiting in galleries. Houle shifted focus in early 2005 to what has been described as American Realism; capturing the surroundings north of Boston and beyond in an eclectic body of work highlighting blue-collar landmarks and iconic Cape Ann light. Recognizing influences from Edward Hopper and Norman Rockwell, Houle has worked towards creating a personal narrative through his paintings connecting the viewer to his or her community. His work can be found throughout the country in private collections and represented by galleries throughout New England.
