Art installation located on the underpass of the Queen Street Bridge in downtown Bolton, designed and painted by Blaze Wiradharma
Today, May 31, the Town of Caledon announced its first public art installation located on the underpass of the Queen Street Bridge in downtown Bolton. Public art is just one of the initiatives included in Bolton’s downtown revitalization plan.
This underpass mural marks the first stage of the city’s public art program that will officially launch later this year.
“Public art adds tremendous value to the downtown core by providing a unique downtown experience and enhancing our public spaces in an accessible way,” said Caledon Mayor Allan Thompson.
The mural was designed and painted by Blaze Wiradharma of Blazeworks Art and Visual Communications. Wiradharma is a sought after muralist with well-known projects in Collingwood and Harriston.
The design was carried out in partnership with members of the Bolton Town Center Revitalization Task Force. The task force is made up of members of the BIA, Chamber of Commerce, downtown business owners, residents and community-minded individuals who are all working together to implement the downtown revitalization plan. -town of Bolton.
This inaugural mural has been completed ahead of the Bolton Town Center Bicentenary event taking place this weekend, June 4-5, 2022. The mural can be seen up close while walking along the Humber River Heritage Trail. The next phase of the program will invite local artists to participate in future public art opportunities across Caledon.
