Transition Prince Rupert making plans to paint the town Red ... Green, Blue, Yellow and a bunch other colours too!

The Argosy on Third Avenue West will be the first " canvas" for
Transition Prince Rupert's "Paint the Town" project which
will get underway in the city in June

Transition Prince Rupert is in the process of assembling their team for a Mural project in the city's downtown west side area, with the Argosy Building set to be the canvas for an urban art experience that will welcome people to the downtown from the western entrance along the 900 Block of Third Avenue West.

The project called Paint the Town, will be launched as part of an Artist Mural Workshop will require
a 100 dollar entry fee per artist  and is set for the week of June 17 to 21.

Those that take part will be led by a some experienced mural artists with Nomadic Alternatives and Derek Edenshaw from the Vancouver Mural Festival lending their talents to the creation of the Argosy work.

The project has gathered a large list of sponsors helping to support the project to this point, included on the list so far are: Pembina Pipeline Corporation, Prince Rupert Community Arts Council, Tourism Prince Rupert, Raymont Logistics, Prince Rupert Grain, Tall Trees Bed & Breakfast, Northern Savings Credit Union, our local Sherwin Williams Paint Store, and the  host for the piece of urban art Argosy.

Links to the visiting artists and their work that will assist the project, as well as details related to the June event at the Argosy can be explored further here.

Once the Argosy project is complete, Transition Prince Rupert will be looking to create more mural projects for other areas of the city, you can follow along with their plans from the Transition Prince Rupert website and Facebook Page.
