It's Your City Hamilton

On Septemer 26, 2010 the It's Your City Project was completed in Hamilton during the Open Streets Hamilton. The project is 4 ft x 2 ft. It was completed on compressed wood board.

The rough board represents the industrial landscape of Hamilton. The background is white with the blue images of Stelco and the Skyway Bridge. The creatively painted tiles are juxtaposed on the board. They represent the emerging arts and culture in Hamilton. Included are the Art Gallery of Hamilton, James St N, Locke St S, and Ottawa St. The nature represented on these tiles include the RBG, the Bruce Trail, and the many waterfalls Hamilton has. Ivor Wynne Stadium, McMaster University, and City Hall are buildings also present in this landscape because of their significance to Hamilton.

The piece was created by the many people of Hamilton by throwing paint on the tiles and using their hands if desired. It you have any questions about this piece please feel free to contact me at
