The Municipal Art Program (MAP) is an initiative by the Town of The Blue Mountains. 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. Selected art will be on exhibit at Town Hall for a period of 12 months beginning in August of each year. 

If you are interested in showing in this unique program, check out our MAP webpage for information on how to apply. Applications close this Friday!

Join the Arts and Culture Council 

The Arts & Culture Council (ACC) was established in early 1996 as a companion to The Gallery at L.E. Shore. The intent of establishing the council was to showcase artists both local and abroad, as well as to provide guidance for art programming in the public space. Members past and present have included some of the most prominent artists from the community, making for an eclectic and innovative mixture of programming and exhibitions. The ACC supports The Gallery at L.E. Shore by organizing exhibitions focusing on the work of local artists in our Gallery and the Town Hall, and by facilitating an ongoing program of cultural events.

If you or anyone you know are interested in joining us, please visit our Arts and Culture Council webpage to view the application details. Deadline for submitting the application and letter of interest is July 3, 2022.
