Artistic volunteers fly flag for Bermuda

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

A 20-strong group of artistic volunteers brought a stroke of creativity to Front Street's No 1 car park on Sunday evening, by teaming up to paint a mural of Bermuda's flag on a wall.

The overnight project was the brainchild of cultural arts movement the Chewstick Foundation, and was intended to celebrate the Island and its culture.

“We were thinking about how we could best represent Bermuda,” said Gavin Smith, the founder and executive director of Chewstick.

He added that the non-profit organisation was looking for partners to participate in future projects.

“A big part of our community art programme is to tell the Bermuda story in a beautiful way — one that provokes thought and inspires,” Mr Smith said.

He thanked the volunteers for giving up their time and the Corporation of Hamilton for providing the opportunity.
