This year Local showdown is scheduled for Friday, November 11, 2016. The CANVAS Local Showdown will call attention to one of the oldest neighborhoods in West Palm Beach through a central theme of “connection” – what that means to an artist and to the world that experiences their art – expressed through site-specific contemporary art murals.
Proposal process has been open since June 1st, and July 30th (THIS SATURDAY) is the last day to get your proposals in. So, if you have been fine tuning your application, better wrap it up and fire it off!
CANVAS Selection Committee is accepting proposals from local artists interested in creating a mural for the CANVAS Local Showdown sponsored by West Palm Beach Art in Public Places (AiPP) and the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) taking place in the Northwood Village in West Palm Beach, Florida on Friday, November 11, 2016.
