Municipal Art Program

The Municipal Art Program is an initiative by the Town. Inaugurated in 2012, the program is designed to provide a showcase for the works of artists in the region while enhancing the environment of the Town Hall for employees and visitors. All works are on loan from the artists for a period of one year.

Call for Artists’ Submissions

The Arts & Culture Council (ACC), on behalf of the Municipal Art Program (MAP), annually announces a Call to Artists for submissions for the coming year’s exhibition. Regional visual artists are encouraged to apply for this annual juried art exhibition. All art must be wall mountable. Selected art will be on exhibit at Town Hall for a period of 12 months beginning in May of each year. In the event of a piece being sold while on exhibit, the committee will co-ordinate to provide a juried selection to replace the sold piece. The ACC annually produces a full-colour brochure complete with information about each artist. The program provides a venue to showcase and promote the region’s artists at The Blue Mountains – Town Hall for all to enjoy.

The Call for the 2019-2020 MAP is now open.  Deadline for submissions is February 28, 2019.  Artists should submit applications electronically with all requirements by the deadline. 

Artists may download the fillable form or if choose, may complete a written application With either form, be sure to submit all requirements and documentation by the deadline.
