Artists wanted: St. Regis Mural Mixed Media Competition

Are you a painter, photographer, or mixed media artist? With demolition and redevelopment on the horizon, we’re looking for Winnipeg’s best to preserve the beauty of the St. Regis Hotel for generations to come!

St. Regis Rendering

Fortress Real Developments Inc. and Edenshaw Developments invite artists from across Winnipeg to enter the St. Regis Mural Mixed Media Competition, capturing the mural on the St. Regis Hotel through their lens and preserving it for the future. With plans in place to demolish and replace the St. Regis Hotel with a new parking structure with ground floor retail, we want to take this opportunity to highlight and feature what has been a historic feature in downtown Winnipeg for many years.

President and CEO of Fortress Real Developments said it best: “When it came to tearing down the St. Regis we wanted to make sure we didn’t completely wipe out historical reference to the building. We decided to honour the building by highlighting a prominent feature, the mural, and inviting local artists to submit their version of preserving the history through the mixed media competition. We are excited to see the creativity that stems from this and look forward to displaying a piece of this historical building in the newly imagined space.”
