Lead Artist: Clear Eyes Collective
August 28, 2019 – September 2020
The NEW Committee is pleased to exhibit Clear Eye Collective’s Community Mural, created in collaboration with individuals from the community. This mural was the result of a workshop led by Clear Eyes Collective at Hamilton Artists Inc.’s ArcelorMittal Dofasco Courtyard in Spring 2019. Over the two hour workshop, participants learned spray paint and brush techniques while discussing ways in which street art brings people together. The finished mural is displayed on a banner facing James Street.
This project was presented in partnership with Clear Eyes Collective, The NEW Committee and Hamilton Public Library
