Transform Your City Mural

In partnership with Make Something Edmonton, Edmonton Public Library and the City of Edmonton, Curio was hired to develop a unique art installation in the downtown core. The Transform Your City Fence Installation represents how a small scale, tactile DIY intervention can contribute to beautifying a public space. We targeted the sidewalk opposite the fenced off downtown library, which is a major pedestrian route and central area of downtown.

Utilizing a simple material (coloured cups) we created a design and worked with a team of volunteers to create a colourful typographical  message within a chain link fence. The combination of materials, design and execution brought a variety of different challenges to the project. Despite everything, we ended up with a vibrant installation downtown that required a different kind of design thinking.

This mural was nominated for an Edmonton Urban Design Award (2017).
