Hamilton launches self-guided city art tour
The City of Hamilton has launched a free art tour throughout the city in recognition of World Art Day tomorrow.
The tour will lead art fans to 19 different public art pieces including mosaics, murals and interactive art instillations.
Sideya Dill, the city marketing coordinator, said: “While walking through the City, it’s hard not to notice the numerous art installations located on almost every street.
“We thought, ‘why not capture a record of all these public art pieces in one place’?
“We often have visitors ask us for more information about our public art and we think this will make the perfect addition to our other tours. It’s also a great way to bring further exposure to the art pieces as well as to the artists themselves.”
Included on the tour are works by Alshante Foggo, Dennis Joaquin and Tai-Quan Ottley, with the trail stretching from Tills Hill to Front Street.
A spokeswoman said the art tour map can be collected at City Hall reception, or found online at the City of Hamilton website.
All of the public art commissioned by the City through its Vivid Art Initiative includes a plaque with a QR code that contains information about the artist and the work.
