The City of Burlington unveils six new local artists’ murals as part of the Burlington Mural Project.
“The city’s public art collection is growing, thanks to engaged residents who shared ideas for mural locations and themes earlier this year,” said Mayor Rick Goldring. “The city is grateful to the dedicated, local artists who brought these ideas to life around our city. We are pleased to be able to have these murals as part of the Burlington Public Art collection.”
The local artist mural initiative is a new public art program designed to tell local stories using local artists. This year’s program commissioned six small to medium-scale murals throughout the city. These commissions were open exclusively to Burlington, Ont., artists. Free professional development opportunities were offered to assist artists with the application process and project development.
