Guelph Museum Hosting Founder's Day Celebrations

Web posted on February 15, 2017

GUELPH ON, February 15, 2017 Guelph Museums invites artists, historians, and creative groups to submit proposals to participate in a new event to celebrate Founders' Day.

Guelph 190: History@Night Party will celebrate Guelph's 190th birthday with history and art activations in downtown Guelph from 9 PM April 22 to 1 AM April 23.

We are "breaking down" the museum walls, extending activities and installations to the streets of Guelph for a free event aimed at creating opportunities to connect, explore and engage with history in unique ways.

Historians and artists are encouraged to participate by providing exhibitions, demonstrations and activities that explore Guelph's history and identity through themes of reconciliation, immigration, landscape, culture, and innovation. Preference will be given to residents of the City of Guelph and Wellington County. A jury, formed by Guelph Museums, will select the featured installations.

The deadline for applications is March 19.

Call for Submissions details and application form are available at
