Public Art Mural

The Downtown Milton Business Improvement Area is dedicated to building a resilient and vibrant downtown community with welcoming spaces for everyone to enjoy. In 2022, we are working with STEPS, Arts Milton and local sponsors and supporters to install a large new mural downtown. The mural will replace the mural that is currently in the Spice o’ Life Parkette near the intersection of Main St. E. and Charles St. The new mural will be launched in the fall of 2022.

Through this public art mural project, we are aiming to:

  • Better reflect the diversity and vibrancy of Milton today
  • Promote and support local arts and culture
  • Beautify the outdoor environment and create a safe community space
  • Create an attraction downtown and encourage economic activity
  • Bring artists, entrepreneurs, businesses, governments, young people and the general public together to create a legacy project in our downtown

History

The mural currently located in the Spice O’Life parkette on Main St. and Charles St. has been an important part of the downtown Milton community for over two decades. It illustrates the artist’s conception of the Mill Pond at the turn of the century. It depicts people doing recreational activities similar to today, like taking a stroll, fishing, and walking the dog. It also shows some scenes of children playing and fishing. The artist and art director is Sharose and was assisted by Pat Schryer, Denise Schryer, Walter Chamberlain, and Arthur Miner.
