    SAN DIEGO, April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Strolling down Broadway during the
 month of April one cannot help but notice the colorful, twelve-foot banners
 lining the street.  Displaying an artist at work, the banners promote San
 Diego's largest local arts festival, ArtWalk.  Team U.S. Bank, the volunteer
 force behind ArtWalk, will carry on U.S. Bank's tradition of supporting the
 arts in the communities by volunteering at the event, which takes place on
 April 28 and 29.
     Set in the charming urban setting of San Diego's Little Italy, ArtWalk
 features visual and performing artists who bring the city to life with a
 variety of media including painting, sculpture, dance, music, poetry, drama,
 photography, video, electronic imaging, architecture and design.
     "We are thrilled that U.S. Bank has decided to support San Diego's visual
 and performing artists," said Greg Seremetis, ArtWalk coordinator.  "Their
 contribution was essential for us to be able to once again bring ArtWalk to
 San Diego."

 create an original piece of work to represent Team U.S. Bank.  Hanna's
 original art, "Rocket to the Moon" will be featured on special Team U.S. Bank
 banners throughout ArtWalk, in all San Diego U.S. Bank branches and on Team
 U.S. Bank volunteer t-shirts.
