Artcite may be undergoing renovations during September, but we still have room to become the Third Stage for the 6th annual
PHOG FEST of independent music and performance. Tom Lucier and Phog Lounge will be expanding from the stages at Phog, and the Capitol Theatre into Artcite for Saturday's performance, with a line-up of arts friendly, experimental and intimate performances for your Phog Fest enjoyment!

The line-up is TBA so far, so visit the Phog Lounge webspace for further updates, We will post the full schedule for the evening here, as soon as we get it. As with all Phog Fests, a single admission wrist-band is required to get into ALL EVENTS. Capacity limits will be in effect, and refreshments available for the evening. Partial proceeds of the Artcite stage will go toward our activities, so come on down, listen to the great music, see new and exciting performances and help support Artcite.

Artcite Inc., Windsor's artist-run center and gallery for the contemporary arts will host a project curated and organized by local entrepreneur/artist Daniel (D3N!@L) Bombardier to feature, fifteen street-art murals that will be created in Windsor’s downtown core (and surrounding areas).

Dynamic murals will replace dull walls that were subject to vandalism (or ‘tagging’), neglect or disrepair. Works will be completed in high traffic, high visibility areas to be experienced by the largest audience possible. Each work will be geographically dependent, reflecting the individual site and a specific community. These works created by internationally recognized street-art muralists will serve as positive gestures to the community, bringing long lasting character, energy and beauty to the city, and placing Windsor on the forefront of the international street-art movement.
