This is an awesome project... congrats to Artists Unite, to all the artists being exhibited, and to the whole community, which gets to see these works for free as part of their everyday lives!

Hi Eilis,
There was a "Call for Artists" announcement that was posted in early June. here. I think it's still even on the home page, but the deadline was June 12th. It's unfortunate you missed this one, but I'm sure there will be more opportunities in the future.

There will be several similar shows over the coming 6 months, so keep an eye out for the next call!

On opening night it was great speaking to you there on the roof top from here in Alaska! Thanks for the movie clip of the piece being shown. I would love to see all the pieces. It looks just wonderful. Wish I was there for the fun.

It is certainly a beautiful show and it was exciting to watch from the street. I really love the idea of being able to see something artistic, uplifting, and wonderous from a regular ol' street. Thank you Peter and Artists Unite staff for being all about the art!!

thank you Anthony and Peter for making this happen! I appreciate all your hard work and am excited to know that my piece had a chance to live outside the internet and be reintroduced to the physical world.
Thanks again!
