Art on the Street Returns … Call to Artists!

February 20, 2018


Collingwood Art on the Street will return in 2018, with an outdoor gallery of hand-painted chairs by artists of all ages.

The Collingwood Downtown Business Improvement Area (BIA) invites visual artists to submit chair designs to Collingwood Art on the Street 2018. Now in its 8th year, AOTS showcases the diversity and talent of our creative community while enlivening the streets of Collingwood from Victoria Day to Thanksgiving weekend.

This year’s theme is ‘Collingwood’s Historic Downtown through the Decades’.  In honour of Collingwood’s 160th Anniversary, designs should highlight the buildings, past businesses, people and celebrations that enriched the downtown.  All businesses must be historical in context (current businesses are not eligible)

The artists selected to participate will be recognized on the chair and in a special brochure distributed across the region. An honorarium of $300 will be paid to the successful artists per chair design selected.

The chairs will enhance our historic downtown core and will be a welcome sight and resting place for residents and visitors.

Artists must submit images of their chair design ideas by March 26, 2018.  Artist Guidelines and Submission Form
