Streets Alive! 10 Year Anniversary
May 12 @ 9:00 am - October 20 @ 6:00 pm
Orillia’s very own living art program, Streets Alive!, kicks off for another great season of dazzling art pieces. This year’s theme is inspired by the last 10 years of Streets Alive! art projects with a new twist! Check out this outdoor art exhibit all season long.
Streets Alive 2018 will showcase a wonderful retrospective of the past decade of public art in our Downtown. Up to 50 sculptures will be on display, using pieces from all previous projects. To keep the 2018 project fresh and exciting, there will be 25 sculptures with refreshed artwork and 25 sculptures with completely new artwork on display throughout the downtown. With 50 sculptures in total, all six blocks of the downtown core will be beautified, with the exhibit continued down to the Port of Orillia, creating engaging walking tours and strengthening our cultural tourism brand. In addition to having Mississaga Street filled with public art sculptures, Streets Alive will be working with artists to enhance the outdoor visual impact of the Peter Street Art’s District, by adding creative elements that will help brand this area as the ‘Art Block’!
Join us for the Kick-off event on May 12!
