The Community Arts Council of the Alberni Valley, in collaboration with the City of Port Alberni, is looking for artists to design original permanent murals to be installed at Echo Centre Pool for our phase two project.
Different sized murals will once again cover the walls in the pool area at Echo Aquatic Centre.
This is an exciting opportunity for local artists to contribute to this exciting continued community project.
These murals will be made out of Aluminum Composite Panels. All materials will be supplied.
If you are interested please drop by the Rollin Art Centre, Echo Centre or call for more details at 250-724-3412.
Complete application packages and guidelines are available for pick up at the Rollin Art Centre and Echo Centre. Deadline for all applications is Jan. 15, 2016.
