The theme and criteria for the 2012’s Art Contest were also announced:

 

“Capturing Mississauga’s Heritage”
175th Anniversary of the Rebellion of 1837

Add Text (alt for images, text for links)We are inviting artists and photographers to walk in the footsteps of history and to retrace and capture an image from the route of William Lyon Mackenzie’s escape following the failed Rebellion of 1837, 175 years ago in 2012! Mackenzie’s flight from authorities took him through historic Mississauga in late December of 1837, following the rebel uprising at Montgomery’s tavern. Mackenzie’s story, and the Rebellion of 1837, has become a famed part of Canada’s history.

We are asking submitting artists to capture a scene along the route that was taken by Mackenzie through Mississauga – a modern scene or streetscape, nature, a historic house or setting, anything that might strike your fancy and in any format that you wish. Prizes will be awarded to the winning entries, and all entries will be part of the ALFEW show “Celebrating Mississauga’s Heritage 2: The 175th Anniversary of the Rebellion of 1837”, which runs from June 19th, 2012 to August 24th, 2012. For more information on the contest, Mackenzie’s historic route of travel, sites along the route, or information about the Rebellion of 1837, please contact Heritage Mississauga.

Criteria:

  • To enter the contest, artists must be members of Heritage Mississauga. There is no contest entry fee.
  • All types of media accepted (pencil drawing; pen and ink drawing; painting; photography; carving; sculpture; collage; weaving; macrame; embroidery, etc)
  • All submissions must connect to the route of Mackenzie’s flight through historic Mississauga (map on reverse).
