- Streets Alive!
From 23 Sat Jun 2012 to 01 Mon Oct 2012
Celebrating 100 years of Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town A public outdoor art exhibit presented by Streets Alive! Orillia’s Streets Alive! invites artists to submit their applications to participate in an innovative outdoor public art exhibit called Leacock Chairs. The “gallery” will be Orillia’s city streets during the summer of 2012. Artists will be working with incredible hand-crafted metal sculptures modelled after a reading chair owned by Stephen Leacock. This original chair can be seen at the Leacock Museum in Orillia. Artists will transform the chair sculptures into original works of art. The chairs will be unveiled to the public at the Streets Alive! 2012 kickoff event on June 23. People’s Choice voting will open and continue until July 28, when winners will be announced as part of Downtown Orillia’s Leacock Sidewalk Sale event. The chairs will be displayed in downtown Orillia from June 23 to late October. The exhibit will be supported with a guide featuring a map.
