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.

The 2021-2022 MAP Show opens August 30, 2021. The art will be available for viewing in the Town Hall Atrium from 12:00pm to 4:30pm. Brochures are available at the Town Hall and at The Gallery at L.E. Shore. This exhibit is also available online.

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 June. 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 August 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 closed July 31, 2021.
