Canada Day Youth Mural Art Contest in Newmarket Ontario
Calling all aspiring Youth Mural Artists! Are you an aspiring mural artist interested in painting on a large Main St. store wall? Are you a youth with crafts or art to display, make on site or sell, musician?
Location: Meyers on Main Costumes – 37 Main St S Newmarket
Date: July 1st Time: 11AM – 6PM
Media call: 289-221-0928
Contest: We’re looking for 5 youthful artists (or teams of artists) up to 27 years of age to come out and paint your interpretation of Newmarket, old or new, using any style preferred inside one of several large frames to be painted on the wall of Meyers Costumes on Main store on July 1st Canada Day. Paint is supplied.
Each wall piece will then be examined by a judging panel of Newmarket residents and councilors who will choose one winning entry.
The winning person (if a team would choose a Director) will then get to assist in the final full wall mural to be placed on at a later 2012 date. They can also submit an entry for consideration as the final full wall mural. Submissions can be made by any youth for consideration as the full mural piece and can be forwarded to be displayed online until a decision is made this fall. From the submissions one design will be chosen for the final wall mural or if the judges decide possibly several side by side, with final choices determined by the judging panel.
The final mural to depict Newmarket old and or new will cover the entire north wall of the costume house at a later date and have the distinction of being one of Newmarket’s first mural artists! Entries may opt for one theme - such as heritage - however final wall will include all the elements thus a side by side another artist option would have to be chosen by the judges. Artists can opt to enter side by side versions (up to 3) as their entry as well. Prizes TBA.
Myers will be co-hosting a B.B.Q. as well on site JULY 1 to feed participants and dish out to the public as well as music with all b.b.q. funds raised going towards a worthy cause and a prize to be given the winning wall art entry.
