Main Street Public Art – City call to artist

I plan to attend the information meeting next Thursday (see details below). Let me know if you’re interested in joining me. Would love to have a beer and brainstorm session at the Canal Oak following the meeting.

The City of Ottawa invites artists to submit proposals to develop, design and install exterior public artwork on Main Street in the neighbourhood of Old Ottawa East as outlined in this Call to Artists.
