Main & Higgins 2009 Project (03)   

   Kelekis Restaurant- by Cyrus Smith and Nereo Eugenio (both unsigned); Cosmopolitan Flowers- by Don Ritson (unsigned); Animal Hospital of Manitoba- by Cyrus Smith. Sponsorship for this grouping was by Mosaic Market BIZ, Neighbourhoods Alive! (Manitoba), Graffiti Art Programming, Kelekis Restaurant, Cosmopolitan Florists and Animal Hospital of Manitoba. This grouping was part of a larger collection of artwork which we show here in 11 sections rendered and installed in 2009. They were removed in 2014 to facilitate overhaul and reconstruction of the concrete underpass but were never reinstalled due to a different vision expressed for the underpass. Original notes follow:
TJ Blair (Project Manager): "We worked closely with the Mosaic Market Business Improvement Zone to create these Murals for the Higgins Underpass. The majority of the artistic concept revolved around blending historic sights in and around Main street with the diverse commerce activity in the neighborhood. This was one of my favorite projects to work on as these Murals were being installed in the underpass so close to our home @ 109 Higgins Ave. Its always great when you're get an opportunity to contribute to a neighborhood beautification project in your own neighborhood! Due to the scale of the project, we were able to employ about 9 individual artists in total to work on the Murals. The diversity of painting styles are vast, which I think is a great metaphor for the people and businesses that are involved with the Mosaic Market BIZ."
