Call for Artists: Downtown Mural Painting (Traffic Boxes)

City of Corner Brook
PUBLIC ADVISORY

**Edit** Hi folks, some clarity on the matter:
The City of Corner Brook was recently approached by a group of artists who wanted to help with some downtown beautification efforts by curating murals on City infrastructure. We were more than happy to facilitate their efforts by providing supplies and putting out a call for more volunteers on their behalf. We apologize this was not reflected in our original messaging. We value our local art community and look forward to future paid collaborative opportunities.

As a part of its ongoing efforts to beautify its downtown core, The City of Corner Brook is seeking volunteer artists to paint murals on intersection traffic boxes.

The theme is “Songs of Newfoundland and Labrador”, meaning any traditional or contemporary Newfoundland and Labrador song may be used as inspiration for the design.

Artists are encouraged to email Glenda Simms at gsimms@cornerbrook.com with an express of interest and work samples. The deadline to submit is August 16, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. (noon). Art supplies will be provided to the successful applicants. 

A number of local artists have already begun similar projects around our City as a means to discourage graffiti, brighten up neighborhoods, and encourage pedestrian traffic. As Corner Brook emerges from the pandemic, we wish to highlight our pride of our culture to our own residents and to visitors in the region.
