The challenge: Use at least a little bit of each material (box included) in the creation of an original artwork. Artists will have 8 weeks to make their art. During the creation time, artists will be invited to engage with their fellow artists in virtual meets, as well as share their project’s progress online.

The artists may combined the mystery materials into a sculpture, add them to a canvas, or whatever their imaginations can conceive. Most importantly, artists are encouraged to have fun, make art, innovate, and present their Mystery Box Art Challenge artwork in the Multicultural Heritage Centre Public Art Gallery exhibition and virtually in 2022.
