Public Art

The Town’s Public Art Program is administered by the Parks Recreation and Culture department and aims to enrich the lives of Collingwood residents and visitors by enhancing public spaces, fostering cultural identity and pride, promoting creativity, and encouraging dialogue among citizens. 

Over 30 applications were received for this mural commission at 28 Huron Street. After careful consideration, the Public Art Committee selected 4 artists to submit a proposal including a design concept and story behind the artwork. Following the guidelines of the The Town’s Public Art Policy and Procedures, the Committee will make their final decision in the next few weeks. We’d like to share the four designs, which are currently under consideration by the Committee. It will be a difficult decision! Here are the artist’s designs and their stories.
