The MRC Pontiac is soliciting works from Pontiac artists to include within its Regional Art Collection.
Calling on the creative talents of those who are native to the Pontiac or have their studio or residence in the MRC Pontiac territory, the MRC has opened a new round of applications for inclusion in its Regional Art Collection.
Started in 2008, the collection was created to encourage artistic exploration among residents and to preserve the diversity and quality of the region’s artistic community.
Works purchased from artists or donated to the Regional Art Collection are displayed permanently within the MRC building.
“Proposals are analyzed by a committee that will take into consideration the quality of the artistic approach and the artist, the importance and reputation of the artist for the local and regional cultural milieu, the cost of the work, the constraints of conservation, restoration or exhibition, and the objective of diversity of media and works (visual arts, crafts, etc.) in the regional collection,” reads the MRC website.
The deadline for application submission is November 15, 2023.
