The Fredericton Trails Coalition, in partnership with the New Brunswick Provincial Exhibition (NBEx), has just released a call for artists to create a mural along the two south-facing walls of the NBEx horse barns which run parallel to the City’s Valley Trail (between Smythe st and Rookwood, across from the Superstore parking lot).


The main goal of the mural is to address the ongoing graffiti and tagging of the walls and provide a safer, and more user-friendly experience for the neighbourhood and those using the City of Fredericton’s Valley Trail. We are aiming to have the mural completed by September 10, 2021.


The call for artists is being done in two phases: the first phase, which closes on March 31 2021, will qualify a maximum of five artists or artist collectives.  At the second phase, the selected artists will be asked to submit a proposed design for the mural. A $500 honorarium will be paid to phase two artists. The winning proposal will be announced in early June, and the start date for painting the mural will be in July.


If you are, or know of, an artist or designer with experience creating murals, and would like to participate in this process, go to:www.frederictontrailscoalition.com to find more about the scope of the project and submission details.   Application guidelines are found here:  mural-application-guidlines.pdf (ipage.com)
