Public art has the power to enrich communities, create captivating spaces, challenge our ideas, provoke discussion or simply add beauty to our day. The Boxcar Mural Project provides an opportunity for local artists to create works of art on train boxcars within the city of St. Thomas. We are seeking a variety of artists, with diverse experiences, backgrounds, styles and techniques that reflects our values of creativity, inclusiveness and beauty.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Expressions of interest to submit and create an original design for a mural on a train boxcar, located outside the Elgin County Railway Museum (225 Wellington Street, St. Thomas). Designs for the boxcar should be original and modern. Artists applying to this project are encouraged to consider the context of the local area and the city as a whole, outside the box interpretations of Jumbo and our railway heritage are welcome but not required.
This call is being administered by Railway City Tourism.
