Municipal Art Program (MAP)
The Municipal Art Program is an initiative by the Town. 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. All works are on loan from the artists for a period of one year. MAP provides a venue to showcase and promote the region’s artists at The Blue Mountains – Town Hall for all to enjoy.
Annual Town Hall Art Show
The 2020-2021 MAP Show is now available for viewing throughout the Town Hall. Brochures are available at the Town Hall and at The Gallery at L.E. Shore.
Annual Call for Submissions
The Arts & Culture Council (ACC), on behalf of the Municipal Art Program (MAP), annually announces a Call to Artists for submissions for the coming year’s exhibition. This call closes annually on the last day of February. Regional visual artists are encouraged to apply for this annual juried art exhibition. All art must be wall mountable and available for sale. Selected art will be on exhibit at Town Hall for a period of 12 months beginning in May of each year. In the event of a piece being sold while on exhibit, the committee may co-ordinate to provide a juried selection to replace the sold piece.
The Call for the 2021-2022 applications is expected to be released early in the spring of 2021. Check back for more information or subscribe to In The Gallery for more information.
Submissions may be submitted to MAP@TheBlueMountains.ca
If you wish to inquire about purchasing one of the works, please contact MAP@TheBlueMountains.ca. Information about each artist is also available in the MAP brochures, which include color photographs of each work. A printed version of the current annual guide is available in the Atrium at Town Hall and at The Gallery in L.E. Shore.
