The WindsorEssex Community Foundation and the City of Windsor with funding from the Canadian Department of Heritage are looking for artists to design and install murals in Olde Sandwich Towne.
Part of Windsor’s commemoration of the War of 1812, the two murals will focus on the intervening 200 years of peace between Canada and the United States.
Artists living in Canada are invited to apply for one or both murals, and the winning application by an artist or a group of artists will receive $12,500 to create and install one mural at either Patterson Park or Mill Street Park.
The Mural Selection Committee will evaluate the design proposals and will select an artist to fabricate and install their design using the specified selection criteria.
The Mural Selection Committee may consist of a representative from: Olde Sandwich Towne BIA, Sandwich Teen Advisory Group (STAG), the Arts Council of Windsor and Region, the City of Windsor, the Community Public Art Advisory Committee and the WindsorEssex Community Foundation.
Complete application information can be found on the city website by searching culture. All applications must be received by Wednesday August 15th 2012 at 12 noon at the Parks and Recreation office located at 2450 McDougall Street.
