A Call To Artists for Broadway East Art Walk, September 28th

2 Sep


A group of neighbours in the Mount Pleasant area have been leading a charge to create an Art Walk in the Broadway East area. A number of businesses along the Broadway corridor between Prince Edward and Prince Albert will be providing some exhibition space within or outside of their premises.  A small scale pilot Art Walk was held on June 8th with great success. So this September 28th, they will be doing a large scale Art Walk.  The goal of the initiative is to bring new life to this area while supporting the local arts with the theme being Art in Unexpected Places. They are looking for bold artists in a variety of mediums including: paint, short film, sculpture, performance, temporary installation, balloon artists, sidewalk chalk artists, eco artists, window painting/decoration, you name it. The field is wide open.   If are interested in submitting your art, submit your contact information and 1 – 2 samples of your work or a link to your portfolio to: broadwayeastartwalk@gmail.com with the subject line “Broadway East Art Walk”. Note: all ages are welcome, in any degree or ability.  Deadline for submitting your expression of interest is September 10th. 

If you are not an artist, but would like to participate in this fabulous event, they are also on the hunt for volunteers, drop them an email at the address above.
