Art on the street is a celebration of art and artists. It showcases our community spirit through artistic expression and makes our downtown area more vibrant and unique! Downtown Collingwood will come alive with several are on the street projects, including 40 Art Banners and the return of the popular (and comfortable) Art Chairs.
This years’ theme will celebrate “Marine Heritage” in honour of the arrival of the Tall Ships to our harbour in August as a celebration of the war of 1812 Bicentennial. The Art chairs will be displayed in several public spaces throughout the downtown core. The Art Banners will create an outdoor gallery on main street, of artwork in a variety of mediums including stained glass, sculpture, and paintings all by local artists. Art on the Street provides a free, public art walking tour opportunity for residents and visitors to experience our rich heritage.
