Call to Artists: Downtown Lightbox Exhibit

Call to Artists: Downtown Lightbox Exhibit
Posted on 01/19/2024
The City of Charlottetown invites artists to submit images or copies of their original art for a temporary lightbox exhibit that will be installed in downtown Charlottetown from March 5 to May 6, 2024.

This spring, Charlottetown will come alive with music as the city plays host to several exciting events including Music PEI Week and the East Coast Music Awards. The lightbox exhibit will add to the vibrancy of the downtown during these activities, illuminating the work of local artists who are encouraged to creatively interpret and submit work based on the theme of Music and Sounds of the Island.

A peer selection panel will review all application materials through a single-stage competition process and recommend artworks to be included in the exhibit. Successful artists will receive an artist fee, and the city will be responsible for producing and installing the lightboxes.

The deadline to submit work for consideration is Monday, Feb. 5, 2024, at 12 p.m. Visit the city’s website for full application details and guidelines. Any questions regarding this opportunity can be directed to Doug Dumais, Culture and Economic Coordinator, at [email protected].
