The Popsilos Project in Prescott-Russell: artists and farm silos wanted

The Popsilos project, a circuit that combines art and agrifood tourism in the Prescott-Russell countryside to celebrate Canada’s 150 years, is looking for help. The organizers are looking to create four giant murals on farm silos that will encourage visitors to come through the countryside and on their way, stop at small producers’ farms to discover their products. They are looking for mural artists (eight) and local visual artists (between four and eight) who will team up with the mural artists to work on the mural design, in the conceptualization phase. These local artists will act as cultural mentors and will represent the community. The project also needs perfect farm silos (four) to create the circuit.
