(WINDSOR, ON) – Artcite, Windsor’s only non-profit, artist-run centre for the contemporary arts will formally thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation for the receipt of a $49,600 project grant.
The funding was directed toward a 24-month project which included the completion of Phase 1 of Free 4 All Walls, a collaborative, public art mural project sited in previously drab and so-called blighted alleyways and buildings, in and around Windsor’s downtown core.
A ceremony to mark the completion will be held July 18 at 2:00 pm as part of the Alley Art Fair. There will be short comments from project funders and organizers and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Launched in the summer of 2013 by organizer and curator , the 2-year Free 4 All Walls project has resulted in the creation of 18 beautiful, thought-provoking, and street friendly graffiti-inspired large-scale murals by internationally renowned street artists from Canada, the US, Australia, and Europe.
