ARTISTS! Canvas Pontiac needs you. Canvas Pontiac is kicking off its’ second season in Spring 2014. Art can be submitted in the form of poster designs, t-shirt designs, and canvas reproductions for cash prizes and the prestige of being on display in vibrant Downtown Pontiac. Submit art at www.CanvasPontiac.com. Last year’s Art Awakening successfully ushered in the DIA Inside|Out program displaying reproduction art from the masters found in the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) as well as our very own art masters from the regions.
Last year seventeen juried works of art were reproduced on 8’ x 10’ canvasses then mounted on select buildings throughout Downtown Pontiac. Art was also displayed throughout the community in windows through the Canvas Pontiac poster contest and t-shirts of citizens and fans of Downtown Pontiac. Last year’s pieces can still be seen in Downtown Pontiac for a few more weeks. Visit www.CanvasPontiac.com for a walking map and tour of the art.
The Pontiac Downtown Business Association (PDBA) supports the local arts through the Canvas Pontiac program. The PDBA is a non-profit, volunteer organization bringing vibrancy to Downtown Pontiac. Membership and Sponsorship is a vital part of the success of rebuilding the core of the community – our downtown. The Pontiac art community awaits your involvement.
