WELLAND (Special) – A family-friendly free event! Why pay to go look for an egg to get chocolate when you can get some amazing art for free!


It’s that time of year! EASTER ART HUNT is just around the corner. The 5th annual Easter Art Hunt will take place Easter weekend and will involve eggs being hidden throughout a predetermined area of the city.

Anyone who is interested in adding some new artwork to their collection can hunt for the eggs which will contain a slip of paper with a number that corresponds with a piece of art! Everyone that finds an egg will be able to redeem their tickets at BLX Studio for a free piece of art!

So tomorrow,  Saturday March 31, starting at 8am, start searching the downtown area for one of the eggs that have been hidden downtown. Bring the egg to the new BLXStudio at the Seaway Mall to pick up your free piece of art! Eggs will be hidden in the downtown area bordered by: East Main Street, Division Street, Hellems Avenue, and King Street, as well as the Market Square and Civic Centre.

This is the fifth year of the hunt, and BLX is proud to support and encourage art and art appreciation through events like this every year. It is also an opportunity to get out and enjoy the community after winter.

This event is not possible without the contribution of various local artists as well as BLX.
