Get to know Streets Alive!
Streets Alive! is an outdoor art event that has been held downtown for the past seven years. Every year the event has a different theme. Past themes include Art Grows Here and Letters of Orillia. This year’s festival is the 2015 DOORS of Downtown Orillia project. Nearly 40 artists will transform old doors into one-of-a-kind, innovative pieces of art. The finished 2015 DOORS will be on display through October. Eventually, they will be auctioned to raise money for this city event.
Join the festivities
2015 DOORS of Downtown Orillia will be unveiled in the heart of town on June 20th, 2015, at the Doors kickoff event. This will also be the day that jurors and the public will be able to evaluate and vote for their favourite artwork. Winners will be chosen by a combination of public vote and jurors’ opinion. The top three artists will be announced at the downtown Starry Night Studio and Gallery Tour on August 22nd. Over $17,000 of prizes will be awarded.
Both Noble Towers Apartments (391 Barrie Road) and the Executive Suites at 114 Creighton Street offer easy access to Downtown Orillia. Williams and McDaniel hopes you attend Streets Alive! this summer. For more information about these Orillia apartments, visit the website today.
