Banners installed at Sunset and Moberly

The banners were manufactured by a local company and installed in early May bringing colour to the street through the voice of community. A wind storm last winter damaged the ageing banners at Moberly Arts & Cultural Centre making room to replace those with the same look of the main Street banners. In this way, the two sites, while a kilometere away from each other, are connected through a visual marker of this 2 year community engaged art process called, Here & There.

Banners created from Here and There

The banners on main street in front of the Sunset Community Centre were in dire need of replacement. It made so much sense to extend the Here and There project outside the facility doors and onto the street. Artist, Pat Beaton anayzed the site and came up with these fabulous prototypes from the community artworks. She chose artwork that represented the historical, social and natural aspect of the Sunset Community.

Mural Layout Meeting with Svend

Hello! This is Zee aka community photojournalist reporting for duty.
In this photo we see Pat pointing out a very problematic light fixture which she had to base the whole mural around!

Here is Svend, he is the 'go-to' guy for the Park Board and the Supervisor of Trades. We needed his expertise in deciding the final design and installation details. Everything went well and the design is a GO!
