There are some new public art projects being installed around Midland.
First, eight utility boxes throughout town, including at the Harbour, along Hugel Avenue and on Yonge Street, are being vinyl wrapped with artwork. Installation started earlier this week and hopefully they’ll be completed by today, depending on the weather.
The laundry room at the Harbour now features new artwork that highlights all Midland has to offer and the Harbour Master has received a number of compliments from boaters about the transformation from the previously blank walls. There is also a new mural ready to be installed on the backs of the storage sheds at the Harbour. The panels will be stored in the Harbour office this winter and installed in the spring.
And finally, a fun and colourful mural at Campbell’s Hill highlighting Little Lake Park has been installed on the reverse side of the Bee City mural. (see featured image of this article)
Our division is working on getting all of Midland’s public art featured on the website, with the goal of launching the page within the next month or so.Karen Mealing – Manager of Culture & Community
