The Town of Collingwood is seeking artists or artist teams to design artwork that will be converted into a temporary/short term mural installation in the entryways of Collingwood’s Centennial Aquatic Centre at 451 Third Street, and Central Park Arena at 85 Paterson Street, Collingwood. 

“The goal for the Recreational Facility Public Art Project is to install artwork that captures attention and inspires and engages the public at two very active community venues,” notes Amanda Henry, the Town of Collingwood’s Coordinator of Arts & Culture. 

Artists are invited to submit high resolution images of new or existing original artworks for consideration by Monday, February 13th at 4:00 p.m. via an online application form available at

A Selection Committee comprised of one Town Staff member and three members of the community will then select one or more images to be printed on material capable of being installed to fit the specific dimensions of the two entryways. 

Full details and project criteria can be found at

Individuals interested in volunteering for the Selection Committee are asked to email or call 705-441-6088 to express your interest, on or before January 27th.
