Group Exhibit: NOTL Hydro Box Beautification Competition 2023

Visit the group exhibition featuring artworks submitted for the 2023 NOTL Hydro Box Beautification Competition. The show features the works of regional artists.


The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre and Niagara-on-the-Lake Hydro are thrilled to present the 2023 NOTL Hydro Box Beautification Competition submissions in a group exhibition showcasing the creative talents of Niagara Region artists.

Three of the town's hydro boxes will serve as canvases for stunning artistic transformations. Artists residing, working, or operating in the Niagara Region were invited to participate, bringing their unique perspectives to the theme of the design, which includes, but is not limited to, nature, Niagara-on-the-Lake history/landmarks, and more. This year, preference will be given to submissions that focus on the theme of transportation, as well as artworks that harmoniously complement the hydro box location - whether it be water, air, or land.

A jury will evaluate the submissions and choose two winning designs. Additionally, the community is invited to participate and select the recipient of the highly coveted People's Choice award. From August 11 to September 10, 2023, visitors of the exhibit will have the opportunity to cast a single vote for their favourite artwork. The announcement of the winning design, including the People's Choice winner, will take place on Thursday, September 14, 2023 at 7:00 pm.
