The Niagara Falls National Heritage Area’s Mural Project will unite artists with the community in a collaborative process, rooted in historical and contemporary themes, that will transform our public spaces and inspire our local citizens. Artists are invited to submit their qualifications for consideration. Upon selection, chosen artists will be given a stipend for the project and supplied the materials necessary to complete one mural each. To be considered, artists are required to complete the application by the deadline of April 21, 2019 through the google form link below:
More information about the project can be found here. For any questions, please contact email@example.com.
The flow of water was stopped completely over both falls on March 29th 1848 due to an ice jam in the upper river for several hours. This is the only known time to have occurred. The Falls did not actually freeze over, but the flow was stopped to the point where people actually walked out and recovered artifacts from the riverbed!
