NIAGARA FALLS, ON - Niagara Falls residents are invited to join artist Wayne Moore in this year's Community Art Project. This collaborative art-experience is coordinated by the Niagara Falls History Museum, and is meant to engage the community in the creation of a large-scale art piece that will be unveiled at the 2022 Night of Art on September 22, 2022.

Local artist Wayne Moore will guide community participants to collectively create a powerful representation of empowerment in a piece titled "Lend a Hand." Participants will have their hands painted by Moore, to place on the artwork, and share in it's creation. Expect the use of vibrant colours reflecting Moore's Jamaican cultural roots and his passion for spreading positive, uplifting energy. The piece will remain on display in the Museum lobby until the end of October. 

The collaboration will take place between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. over six Thursday nights: 

  • June 30
  • July 14
  • July 28
  • August 11
  • August 25
  • September 8

This event is free and open to all. Dress appropriately, and prepare to get a little messy with this hands-on painting experience.
