The Winsome Capital and Gentle Waters Murals

The BMO National Mural Series is a public art project in collaboration with STEPS and BMO Financial Group. This project will bring new public art installations by Canadian artists to BMO branches from coast to coast that reflect themes of community, family and diversity.

Project Type: Permanent Exhibit

Artists: Connie Wheaton

In “The Winsome Capital”, Connie delved into Fredericton’s rich history and blended it with the present, capturing the beautiful architecture and rustic streets. “Gentle Waters” is inspired by the stunning natural landscapes and riverscapes that Fredericton has to offer, featuring imagery of beautiful trails, boat docks as well as the historical Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge and Princess Margaret Bridge that connects the North and South sides.

These works of art were made possible by BMO in collaboration with STEPS Public Art. BMO’s National Mural Series was designed to create opportunities to celebrate local communities and the people who live and visit them. By working with hyper local artists to design murals with meaning and impact specific to each location, BMO hopes to bring art to locations where artists and community members might not otherwise have an opportunity.

At BMO, we are proud to be partners in these communities, celebrate our customers, and support local artists. These beautiful pieces of art not only express BMO’s values and celebrate diversity they also provide opportunities to surprise and delight those visiting our branches. We look forward to expanding this program and curating many more murals in branches across Canada.
