Pro-JECT! Niagara is an opportunity for Greater Niagara-based visual artists to design unique signage for businesses located along the North End of Main Street, Niagara Falls.
How Do I Paricipate?
To participate in Pro-JECT! Niagara, artists must attend an informational workshop on June 17th, at 6pm. At this workshop, artists will receive information needed to develop and submit a completed sign design proposal. All design proposals are due July 8.
Once initial proposals are submitted, business owners will select a design, then work together with the artist at a Rapid Prototyping Blitz to refine and prepare final designs for judging. Sign fabricators, engineers and zoning/planning experts will be on hand during the Blitz to advise.
Do I get Paid?
Artists whose design is selected for fabrication will receive $500 for their design. All other artists who participate will receive compensation in the form of gift cards from participating businesses.
Can I Fabricate my Own Sign?
Artists interested in fabricating their own signs must demonstrate previous experience in sign making or other closely related work. If you are interested in fabricating your own sign, please send work samples to ProJECTNiagara@gmail.com. All other artists will have their designs fabricated by local experts.
