Art On Oliver Street- A Public Art Initiative
CALL FOR ARTISTS!
Lumber City Development Corp. was awarded funding through the OATH Community Benefit Fund for Niagara County to fund Oliver Street Public Art. This initiative known as "Art on Oliver Street" will officially launch in Spring 2019.
This is a 3-part project that will include:
1. Installing approximately 24 reproductions of artwork in the windows of vacant and underutilized storefronts on Oliver St. between Thompson & Wheatfield Streets.
2. The creation of a 3D installation display in a storefront on the corner of Oliver & Thompson Streets.
3. The creation of a mural by Chuck Tingley at the DHU Strand Theatre located at 540 Oliver Street.
We are seeking artists who wish to participate in this program.
Please refer to the Call for Artists submission forms below for more information.
All entries are due March 1st 2019, and the selection process will begin mid-March 2019.
Through this project, we hope to create a "walking art gallery" on Oliver Street which will not only immerse pedestrians in the local arts community, but will bring attention to buildings, promote walk-ability, and beautify this key corridor in North Tonawanda.
