Call to Columbia Basin artists

The Fernie and District Arts Council has been awarded a Public Art Grant by the Columbia Basin Trust to add to the public art inventory of Fernie. The project will be to select and install a permanent mural in Fernie.

The Fernie Mural Project is open to all experienced and professional mural artists who live in the Columbia Basin.

The theme of the mural is: ‘to reflect Fernie’s heritage, culture, hopes, dreams and aspirations.”

The mural should reflect the Fernie community in 2019, highlighting the people, places, and things that make it unique. It should beautify the Fernie downtown, complementing it but not competing with it.

The theme is broad to give the opportunity for the artist to put forward their interpretation of Fernie.

The mural will be located on the side of The Beanpod, 691-2nd Ave, Fernie – on the outside wall. The mural will be on the side of the building on 7th Street. (See our website for specific measurements.)

Budget: $20,000 CAD (maximum. See page four of contents of proposal for full details.

Deadline for submissions: 4 p.m. on Thursday, August 1.
