Fun Is Important

The Beaches Sandbox murals are a community-engaged public art project created by artist Bareket Kezwer in collaboration with Beaches Sandbox, BMO Bank of Montreal and STEPS Public Art. These works of art, which consist of two murals that grace the front and back of the building, were created as a response to the excitement and joy the local community shared about the opening of a new space to play and build new memories together.

Project Type: Permanent Exhibit

Artists: Bareket Kezwer

This mural responds to the excitement and joy the Beach Community shared about the opening of a new space to play, build new memories together and see a splash of colour in an urban landscape. These were shared during 14 hours of art-based programming and engagement with children and youth.

Thank you to Brian Bennett for his invaluable assistance painting this mural.
