Call for Artists: The Junction Window Wonderland
This call is for both paint mural artists and digital animation artists! Painters and animators will be paired with a small business to transform a Junction window into a multi-media visual installation. The use of Augmented Reality will allow the animation to be overlaid on top of the window painting. The two mediums will be superimposed to create the interactive piece – a window mural that comes to life!
Taking place through the winter season, from November 26, 2021 – January 2, 2022, The Junction 2nd Annual Window Wonderland will transform the Junction neighbourhood into an outdoor gallery that is interactive, engaging, and magical. The exhibition will use local artists and Augmented Reality to create an impressive display of public art.
In partnership with international tech company ARTivive, The Junction BIA will be showcasing our local businesses and artists featuring 15-20 interactive painted windows accessed through their AR app. Window Wonderland is Toronto’s first large-scale display of AR and will provide an accessible, expressive and immersive artistic experience for locals and visitors. Join us in this unique creative experience to show Toronto how amazing our local artists and businesses are!
Submissions close at 11:59 pm on Friday, July 16
