St. Thomas ON, September 10 2019: Railway City Tourism is excited to announce the
official unveiling of the first big step for promotion of the arts and the enhancement
of public spaces in St. Thomas.
Kicking off a St. Thomas-wide street art project are the boxcar murals. These boxcars
are currently located at the Elgin County Railway Museum. Four artists with ties
to the area have completed the murals. Each mural is as unique as each artist and
highlights their personal experience and relationship with St. Thomas.
The murals will be officially unveiled during the nation-wide Culture Days celebration,
September 28th downtown St. Thomas at Moore and Talbot Street. They are available
for viewing all day in this location starting at 9am, and speeches and a very special
announcement will be made at 4:30pm.
In addition to the boxcars, spectators can witness chalk street artist Will Graham,
with the help of chalk art students, create a massive piece on Moore Street starting
at 9am. Those looking to participate can pick up some chalk and try their hand at
their own masterpiece as well in this celebration of St. Thomas Street Art!
