Cornwall Ontario — The Center for the Arts Collective is thrilled to present their second fundraiser: a mural project High Five for the Arts. On Saturday, June 7th, everyone is invited to participate in the creation of a mural that will one day find its home in a new arts center. For $20 one can paint a square of this exciting project. This event is for all ages and all levels of artistic skills. Even the finger painters are welcome. The variety of styles and artistic expressions will add color, texture and diversity to the final design.
To reserve your square before they sell out, you can purchase tickets at the Benson Center, Centre Culturel de Cornwall and OBO Studios.
You can join in on the fun on Saturday June 7th from 10am to 5pm at the Pommier Square, corner of Pitt and Second streets. In the event of rain, the project will move indoors at TAG Cornwall (The Art Gallery)
The Center for the Art Collective is dedicated to building momentum, excitement and a bank account towards a multi-disciplinary arts center. As the city’s report on art and culture suggests, the Centre for the Arts might be a new building or a retrofit. Our hope is to see this project actualized with the financial support of the three levels of government (one-third municipal, one-third provincial and one-third federal). Our fundraising activities will allow us to use every occasion possible to raise funds and present submissions for grants in collaboration with community groups and organization.
Join us to participate in our fundraising efforts so that together we make this dream come true.
