Calling all Picassos-in-the-making and fledgling Michelangelos: Harmony Village is organizing a design competition for students from the Georgian College Fine Arts program.
The contest will show off the work of budding Barrie artists at the Lake Simcoe Presentation Gallery at 75 Bradford St. Entrants will design a decorative fixture to be hung from the ceiling of the gallery.
An expert panel made up of representatives from the Georgian College and the Fine Arts program, notable names within the design world and community members will decide which team will take home the $5,000 prize.
Jack Pong, President and CEO of City Core Developments, the developer behind the Harmony Village Lake Simcoe, highlighted the importance of engaging with the local community – especially the younger crowd.
“We’re so excited to be working in partnership with Georgian College to provide the College with entrepreneurial learning experiences for students as well as other work place opportunities,” he said.
The winning masterpiece will be named at a special event hosted by City Core Developments in late spring or early summer.
Located on the Barrie waterfront, Harmony Village Lake Simcoe is a project devoted to the idea of community engagement. Aside from reaching out to Simcoe region-residents with the mobile design contest, the development will be designed as a walkable, tight-knit urban village.
