Canvas Pontiac awards ceremony

When: Fri., June 17, 5 p.m. 2016

For the fourth year in a row, the work of 25 local artists will be showcased in Pontiac on 8-foot-by-10-foot canvases installed on buildings through the city’s downtown district. Everyone from artists, fans, family, friends, and patrons will gather Friday for an awards ceremony to honor the artists. Awards will be given to first-, second-, and third- place winners selected by judges from the Detroit Institute of Arts, Oakland University, and Gallery on the Boulevard. A fourth award, the Community Choice, will be awarded to the artist who gets the most votes (votes are made with tickets purchased, so you should probably buy a lot of those.) This ceremony has become a signature event each year in a city that’s experiencing a renaissance
