209 Osborne Street
"Confused Clown", so named since this location is less than half a block from Confusion Corner.
This artwork was rendered by Osborne Village Art Group, Regan Philpott and David Hosanna in 2004. In July of 2022 the building was demolished to make room for a new development at the site.

Sharon Michalowski (client): "We were thinking about having the wall done for a couple
of years and this year we decided to go ahead with it. The artist contacted us at
just the right time so it was perfect. He thought that would be a good place to have a
Mural because it's right there at Confusion Corner. He was looking forward to doing the
Mural; so he showed us some artwork and this is the one we decided upon. And the
colours-we were just so pleased! Regan put so much effort into it, and he worked hard!
The weather wasn't nice and he had to work around the fact that we
had customers during the day. He didn't get in the way of customers or business. He
used the ladder and put some boards up over the windows so that the clown could be
more full. Now it's complete and we're very happy with it."
Regan Philpott: "I would have liked to have done more here. At one point I wanted to have a waving hand that
extended over the top of the roof working from a spring, but their budget didn't allow for that. It sure does brighten that area.
They already had a nice awning on their storefront, but the white stucco was pretty bland, so I chose all the colours I wanted for the wall."
