THE NEW DOWNTOWN WEST URBAN MURAL PROJECT IS HERE!

Our own Urban Mural Project is now funded, so we're seeking interested DW building owners/managers AND committee volunteers!  Are you interested in seeing extraordinary commissioned murals invigorating our DW streetscapes?  We’re already in discussions with some building owners, and we have a few committee volunteers.  But we still need more of each!

This committee will be working with potential artists, and the City, to choose final artworks. We hope to have 1-3 beautiful murals in DW by the end of fall 2018. Whether you want to join the committee, or you own/manage a DW building that would benefit from a professional mural, just contact our Committee Lead, Tim Beatty, at 403.852.0481.  See what our friends in the Beltline Community have already done with their urban murals project at www.beltlinemurals.ca.
