A project made by local artists, Words and Images: Responding to this Place is a series of murals dotted across Downtown Barrie.

Through a partnership between the 320 Collective, the Maclaren Art Centre, and the Downtown Barrie Business Association, each installation reflects the beauty of the written word by past and present Poets Laureate of Barrie, Bruce Meyer and Victoria Butler. Local artists Katie Green and Leandra Almeida have created unique pieces of art that pairs with each poem.

The four murals can be found at the following place:

  1. “Centennial” at Dunlop Steet E, alleyway beside Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery
  2. “Holy Land” at former BMO building adjacent to Meridian Place, south wall facing Simcoe Steet
  3. “Kempenfelt Drive” at Collier Steet at Clapperton Steet, the alleyway between 19 and 21 Collier Steet
  4. “The Future” at Dunlop Steet W at Mary Steet, Southeast corner

With the upcoming open-air Dunlop on Saturday, November 7th from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM, this weekend will be the perfect time to walk downtown and check out the murals!
