Have you seen cool art on the walls of your favourite spots around town?
We Heart Local Art enables businesses to directly connect with a local artist to invite them to display their artwork on their walls. Think of it as an online dating service…but for art!
Arts Whistler is excited to now offer We Heart Local Art as a year-round program of in-resort local artist exhibitions. After thirteen successful years of pairing local artists and Whistler businesses for ArtWalk, it’s now evolved into a year-round showcase of local creatives.
Over the past few years we’ve seen more and more businesses apply to ArtWalk with a feature artist already committed to them. Some artists have formed long term relationships with key participating businesses, which is an exciting outcome of the ArtWalk program.
Watch for the We Heart Local Art sticker around town or check out our online Culture Maps to see whose art is featured where. See something you love? You’re in luck! These pieces are for sale but don’t last long! Contact the artist if you are interested in buying.
Are you an artist or business? It’s easy to get involved!
Become an Arts Whistler Member to have your profile displayed on our online Artist Listings. Ensure all of your contact info, photos, and bio are correct and up to date because this is the database businesses will be using to find the perfect match for their empty walls.
Browse through the online Artist Listings to find your match made in art heaven. Once you find the perfect artist to fill your walls, contact them and make the magic happen.
Tell us who you’ve matched with!
Let Arts Whistler know when you’ve confirmed your pairing and we’ll set you up with a We Heart Local Art sticker to display in your front window, a profile on the online Culture Maps and our printed Arts Scene, and an inclusion in our upcoming promotions. The next deadline for submissions is April 1.
Arts Whistler doesn’t take a commission. We just want to promote artists and businesses that care about local artists. Win win!
