As part of the Saturdays on Sargent Street Activation Project, the West End BIZ decided to incorporate live mural painting to elevate the pedestrian experience along Sargent Avenue and make the West End a fun place to explore.
The project was titled: ENERGIZE Mural project. We then sent out a “Call to all Mural Artists” and selected three artists to carry out the project. The outcome of the ENERGIZE Mural Project was three murals permanently installed along Sargent Avenue in the West End.
We encourage everyone to walk by and admire the artistic work.
