Are you interested in having your art on display for years to come? The Town of Antigonish is seeking submissions for the Photo/Mural Program from a local artist.

The selected artist will receive a $1000 honorarium for their work.

In the initial application process, the Town is looking for a well thought out concept or idea, not a fully completed design. The Town will also accept previously completed designs that meet the themes outlined below.

This is an exciting opportunity to create art that shares a story of Antigonish vibrancy! The Town has outlined themes that your submissions must be inspired by.

*Concepts for paintings, digital designs, sculptures, designs with alternative materials, photography, etc. will all be accepted for review. The Town’s Beautification Committee along with the property owner of the selected location will review and chose the final submission.

This year's themes include: 

  • diversity (cross-cultural and cross-generational) 
  • Heritage/History (Farming, fishing, etc. What has made Antigonish from past to today)
  • Wellness
  • Sustainability
  • Education

Please complete the application form and submit by October 16, 2020.
