Over the past century, Base31 played an important role in the nation’s aviation history, first as an air training base, and in the decades since as a hub for local flying clubs and aviation lovers.
Yet Prince Edward County is home to over 300 bird species and reminds us that aviation is not just a human endeavor.
In reverence of all things that fly, Base31 invited artists to help us explore the theme of “Nature’s Aviators,” and in April 2022 we published a formal call for submissions for large scale original works to be installed on the exterior of one of our buildings.
Today we announce the winners of this call!
Please join us in celebrating artists Portia Chapman, Bill Greaves, Frank Hannan, Milê Murtanovski, Steph Payne, Vanessa Rieger and Constance Intounas on their winning submissions.
These pieces will be installed to beautify the exterior façade of the former Officer’s quarters at Base31.
