Shawn, Craig and I all applied for a collective grant to run a mural program with youth in Halifax on the Historic Farmer’s Market. We were successful and received a generous grant from the 4C’s Foundation. While Shawn and Craig were in New York, I worked on gathering together a group of kids to work with us. Since we’d done so much work with Inglis Elementary, we already knew a lot of kids there. I also went to Citadel High and found some people that seemed interested. We ended up with a really great group of kids ranging in age from 12-17. We got together a few times before we started painting to share food, hang out and plan. We ended up painting over three days and it came together really successfully. A HUGE Thank You to the 4C’s for making this possible! And to all who contributed: Nora and Kelly Featherstone, James and Chris Davy, Marlon Perez, Thanasi K., Bryson V., Carlos R., and Nick M.
Here are some process photos:
Here are two more murals they painted. The first includes a portrait of our dear friend Chris, as a memorial piece. When the property manager of the buildings they were painting on heard the story, he asked them to paint a memorial piece for his friend who had died while surfing. They started it at night, and when they came back the next night, Obey had put up a piece on the wall above theirs. Both are around the corner of Meserole and Waterbury in Bushwick.
The traffic box is on Quinpool and Connaught. The large “Welcome to Halifax” mural is behind the Tim Horton’s on the south end of Barrington street, and the squid is in the Dartmouth Cove.
