CALL FOR ARTISTS
The 2021 ArtWall in Hintonburg is looking for artists
The Wellington West Business Improvement Area is looking for three new artists or collectives to bring their talents to create outdoor public art murals on the 2021 edition of the Parkdale Park Art Wall, inspired by Daniel Martelock.
Artists will paint in public in a lively public park setting on a pre-primed 4″ x 8″ wooden panel, which can then be removed and displayed elsewhere in the park, and even possibly “adopted” by local businesses for permanent installation and display elsewhere in the neighbourhood.
Scroll down for more information, or if you’re ready…
APPLY HERE by August 1, 2021 (24:00 EST)!
