Artist Opportunities


Paint-A-Hydrant is a public art project benefiting the Fight For Me Foundation supporting Wilson firefighters.
Open to individuals, businesses, non-profits and civic groups - this event makes a GREAT team-building activity! Adopt one of the Designated Historic Downtown Wilson hydrants, and then design and paint it (or arrange for one of our wonderful local artists to paint it for you).
The adoption fee is $100, and adoption requests including artwork draft must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2.
This year's Paint-A-Hydrant is planned to coincide with the next ArtSpin day on Saturday, June 3 starting at 10:00 a.m. in Historic Downtown Wilson.


Wilson Arts Exhibition, Gallery Shop, and Instructor Proposals

We often have requests from those interested in teaching a class, having work in the Gallery Gift Shop, or exhibiting work in the Truist Event Gallery. If that's you, please utilize these forms.  If you have additional questions, please reach out to Visual Arts Coordinator Dee Dee Oliver at
