The City of Sculpture's project dubbed (PAINT), is an ongoing initiative to bring the artwork of local Hamilton-area artists to the walls of the Jack Kirsch Underpass located within Hamilton's urban core. Because of Hamilton's recent renaissance in downtown development, it has become a primary strategy to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the city's major entrance corridors. In planning with the city and our organization, the project works to reduce blight along the underpass by adorning it with art.
How Does It Work?
Two artists will be selected to produce five (5) 12" X 12" canvassed paintings; each artist dedicated to one side of the underpass. The work should flow as a series and work to enhance the overall appeal of the underpass itself. After selection, artwork will be submitted to the City of Sculpture in late August, and over a one week period, the artwork will be professionally photographed and printed on a 10' X 10' dibond-metal panel. When printing is complete, the artwork will be installed along the underpass.
