The Expo: Extreme Paint-Off - Rescheduled!

Sometime getting your rain date rained on turns out to be a blessing in disguise.
 
After a morning of sad feelings about the weather, we decided to see unfortunate circumstances as opportunity so we've moved The Expo: Extreme Paint- Off to Friday September 27 from 6:00- 8:30 pm to kick off Culture Days in Grimsby!
 
Culture Days, (held this year on September 27, 28 & 29) is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a national network of cultural connections devoted to providing Canadians with opportunities to participate in, and appreciate, all forms of arts and culture. Through an annual three-day national celebration each September, hundreds of thousands of artists and cultural organizations in hundreds of cities and towns come together and invite Canadians to participate in free interactive and “behind the scenes” activities to discover their cultural spirit and passion. 
 
As a leading national voice for the active and engaged cultural life of all Canadians, Culture Days provides support, tools and resources to a wide variety of artists and cultural organizations to help them unite the country through engagement in culture.
 
Please help us distribute this date change!

Join us in Grimsby in the FORT Parking Lot on the corner of Ontario and Adelaide streets for The Expo: Extreme Paint Off on September 27th, 2013!

This event is a community outreach initiative organized by the Grimsby Public Art Gallery, the FORT, and West Niagara Second Stage Housing and Counseling as a way for local youth to show off their skills through a community–conscious outdoor art project. With the invaluable help of the Mayor’s Youth Action Committee, teams have been assembled to create large-scale art murals that will go on to be displayed in our Sculpture Garden over the Summer! The team members will have only a couple of hours to wow the crowds in a friendly art competition focused on teamwork. Prizes will be awarded, food and music will be enjoyed, fun will be had by all!
 
We apologize for any inconvenience!
 
Thank you for understanding and supporting the Arts and community projects in Grimsby!
