Art on the Street 2021

Celebrating the theme “Keep A Song in Your Heart,” WAC welcomes back Art on the Street for the fifth year. Six artists have been selected to interpret the theme to transform blank Muskoka chairs into one-of-a-kind pieces of art. And they can be yours!

Finished chairs and the artists will be revealed on the WAC Facebook page. Starting July 5th, one chair per week will be auctioned off live on Facebook. Follow the WAC Facebook page for updates and bidding instructions.

2021 Photo Contest

Capture the beauty and excitement of Westport

The annual WAC Photo Contest is open to all amateur photographers. We are hoping for photographs that celebrate the beauty of Westport and the surrounding area of North Crosby. As vaccination rates increase and government restrictions decrease, the Village will once again have lots going on. Amateur photographers are encouraged to capture those untamed moments in nature, summer sunsets, family gatherings, winter sports and everything else in between, just as long as it happens in the Westport area.

Prizes

1st: $100

2nd: $75

Youth: $50

Contest is open for photos taken between 1 April to 31 December 2021. Open to all amateur photographers residing or visiting the Westport area. Limited to 5 entries per person. Entries can be submitted to: info @ westportartscouncil.com, subject line “photo contest 2021 entry”.

Winners announced by March 15, 2022.
