The Opportunity

This new mural will be located under and around the water features at a new spray park at Chartiers Playground. The artist was selected following a Request For Proposals issued by the City in January 2022. For this all-ages community space, residents and users of the park have requested an artwork that is responsive to the context of the neighborhood and promotes playfulness and interaction.
