Huron County, Ontario – The first, of up to six, murals of the 2022 Huron County Mural Project is now complete.  The mural, designed and installed by artist Meaghan Claire Kehoe, can be viewed at the Bayfield Arena, on the wall facing Jane Street.

An unveiling of the mural will be held on Tuesday, September 13, from 5-6 p.m. at 4 Jane Street, Bayfield.  Huron residents are invited to attend the unveiling to meet the artist and view the new mural.

About the Artist

Meaghan Claire Kehoe is a full-time emerging mural artist and painter based in Oshawa with community connections across southern Ontario. Her public street art pieces can be experienced in Toronto, Kitchener, Waterloo, London, St. Thomas and future work is coming soon to Simcoe, Aylmer, Brooklin and Port Burwell.

“It has been very gratifying to see this first mural take shape over the past week in Bayfield.  Most of the credit belongs to the Bayfield Centre for the Arts who have been spearheading the mural project on the ground in Bayfield.” said Economic Development Officer, Rick Sickinger.

“Working with the Economic Development team, and the representatives from the other five communities commissioning murals has been a great experience.” said Leslee Squirrell, President of the Bayfield Centre for the Arts and member of the local selection committee.  “We hope that with Bayfield’s mural now underway, it will help to generate more interest and excitement for the other communities participating in the Mural Project as well as for the upcoming Public Art Trail!”

The County of Huron will be commissioning up to six artists to paint murals as part of the Huron County Mural Project. The goal of this creative project is to enhance the cultural vibrancy of Huron’s communities and support ongoing tourism recovery in Huron County through public art.  Additional murals are planned to be installed in Clinton, Exeter, Goderich, Seaforth and Wingham.

The finished murals will become part of a public art trail across Huron County and are expected to remain in place for approximately 10 – 15 years.
