3 New Murals Coming to Hamilton

Three new murals are coming to Hamilton thanks to the Street Spark program! The murals will bring even more colorful art to the City of Sculpture

The Street Spark program was founded in 2015 in partnership with the Fitton Center for Creative Arts, the City of Hamilton, and the Hamilton Community Foundation. This public art program aims to help enhance the arts identity of Hamilton as well as create more opportunities for local artists. 

"Through this program we continue to energize our streetscape, create awareness of the arts, and spark new development throughout Hamilton," — Street Spark

 

The program’s 12th, 13th and 14th murals are planned to be painted in Summer 2020, bringing beauty to the city’s North End, Jefferson and Taft Place/Governor’s Hill neighborhoods. Here's what they have planned:

 

Robros

This mural titled Robros will be painted at 802 Heaton Street, in the North End. The mural is bright, modern and a fun take relating to North End's industrial past as the home to the Fordson Tractor Plant, operated by a subsidiary of Ford Motor Co. The artist, Logan Walden, is using existing windows on the currently unoccupied building as eyes for the two machines.

This mural titled Garden Parade will be painted on the wooden fence in Jefferson Park located near East and Henley avenues, in the Jefferson neighborhood. The mural portrays a fun group of children parading between giant garden flowers and creatures. The colors will really pop against the dark background, and the artist's design has a similar feel of children's book illustrations.
