The Bygone Era Entertainment Society has added some badly needed artistic colour to the downtown core of the city with two new murals by artists Tina Lindegaard and Sue Davies.
These works of art were fastened to the side of the McKinnon Block, home of the Nickelodeon Museum, which had been vandalized by taggers.
The wall front the alley was repainted but BEES directors felt that adding some vibrant public art would help deter vandalism in the future.
One of the murals is based on a historical photo showing the pool parlour that once occupied the building; the other is a whimsical salute to the Nickelodeon, which boasts a fabulous collection of mechanical musical instruments.
Here is a selection of images of the two-day installation process:
