We are sad to inform everyone that we have made the very difficult decision to postpone this event. We will reevaluate in spring 2022.
Please scroll down to get to know the artists behind the murals, the sponsors of the project and the donors of the prizes.
We encourage you to walk Brentwood and visit the murals. We will be updating the map as the last few murals find walkways to call home.
Please check back regularly!
PS. We are actively confirming if YYC Food Trucks is still a go. Stay tuned!
Join us in celebrating the completion of this summer project! Thank you Activate YYC for the grant to make this possible.
Goals for the project:
- Make unique, beautiful places that people would want to seek out in our neighborhood regardless of the season
- Build stronger connections among our Brentwood residents by engaging them in the walkway mural project and,
- Encourage more walking in Brentwood by having a map.
We have installed murals along several walkways in Brentwood. The project even inspired Brentwood’s first garage door mural!
Check out this map that shows all the murals and walkways!
Meet the artists behind the paintings and grab a bite to eat. If you live on a walkway, there will be several murals looking for new homes!
