Brief Description

The City of Peterborough invites artists or artist teams residing in Ontario to submit their credentials, examples of prior experience and a conceptual approach for an outdoor mural to be installed in Peterborough, Ontario. The Downtown Mural Project will support fresh, engaging and innovative proposals from both emerging and established artists working in a range of disciplines and media. Artworks may be created directly on, or affixed to, panels to be mounted on the building. Beyond improving the appearance of the chosen location, the artwork should in some manner consider the community in which it will be installed and demonstrate an understanding of the host site — YES Shelter for Youth and Families. More information about the site can be found on the YES shelter’s website and in the videos links provided. BUDGET IS $20,000 CAD
