Art on the Street Returns … Call to Artists!


Collingwood Art on the Street will return in 2019, 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 2019. Now in its 9th year, this annual project 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 “Artist’s Choice” as we invite artists to bring their own unique style and vision to the project.  This year will be a two-phased submission process.  Artists are invited to submit their interest in participating in the program by Friday, February 22.  Design submission for the chairs are due by March 20.

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.
