Through a partnership with the Hamilton Parks Conservancy, artist Jenn Acus-Smith has designed six bird-themed murals to be painted in six different Hamilton area parks.
The bright colors and bold designs will enhance the chosen buildings, welcoming residents and creating a strong visual placemaking/branding tool for the Parks Conservancy. This project will encourage fun, family-friendly programming for Hamilton residents and will help people learn more about their natural environment. Jenn will be the lead artist on the project and will hire several local/student artists to assist, providing hands-on training and valuable mural-making experience.
