Call to Artists for New Lightbox Exhibit

City Launches Call to Artists for New Lightbox Exhibit
Posted on 06/17/2024
Calling all artists! The City of Charlottetown invites artists at all levels of experience and working in any medium to submit images or copies of their original art for a temporary lightbox exhibit that will illuminate downtown Charlottetown from the week of Aug. 26 to Nov. 8, 2024.

Artists are encouraged to submit work based on the theme of “Your Community in Bloom,” and creatively interpret the natural world (plants, flowers, trees, fields, lands, beaches, streams, rivers, waters, animals, etc.) through the lens of community. The theme is intended to celebrate the City of Charlottetown hosting the 30th annual Communities in Bloom National Symposium and Awards Ceremony in October. The exhibit will feature 20 double-sided lightboxes, enhancing the vibrancy of downtown, showcasing the exceptional talent of Island artists and highlighting the cultural significance of our landscapes and waterways.

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 be paid an artist fee of $450 plus tax (if applicable). The City will be responsible for producing and installing the lightboxes.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, July 15, 2024 at 12 p.m.
