A stroll around Barton Village looks a little different nowadays.
That’s because the Barton Village BIA commissioned 15 Hamilton artists and art collectives for a series of public art installations called Anything is Possible on Barton.
The commissioned artists have used their respective visual arts disciplines and distinct aesthetics to turn a variety of vacant storefronts on Barton Street into evocative art displays.
“Drawing on themes surrounding the people, places and history of Barton St, these pop-up windows will share the story of this community and cultivate its identity as a place that values art and culture,” reads a message from the Barton Village BIA.
Come out to @Barton_Village to see the art installations from 15 local Hamilton artists!
