In partnership with Wall-to-Wall Rural Mural Tour and sponsored by CWB National Leasing, communities across the province have a chance to apply to receive a contemporary, accessible, and public-facing work of art in 2020.
Up to five Manitoba communities will receive a subsidy for the creation of a contemporary mural curated by Synonym Art Consultation that will highlight the local community, spark conversations, and inspire engagement. Communities that face barriers to accessing art, especially those in Northern Manitoba and Indigenous communities, will be given priority in receiving art and art-related workshops.
Synonym, part of the curatorial team of Wall-to-Wall, will oversee the submissions process, ensuring that the selected artists and communities flourish in unity.
Thank you to all of the individuals, organizations and communities across the Province who have submitted their applications for Mural 150.
Applications closed on January 31, 2020.
Manitoba 150 looks forward to announcing the recipient communities for a public Mural in celebration of Manitoba’s 150th anniversary in May 2020.
Mural 150 recipients will be posted on this site in May
