Midland adds another mural to its growing collection

Newest mural celebrates town's status as a Bee City
The new mural is located at David Onley Park.

Midland's mural collection keeps expanding.

Combining its status as a Bee City with its reputation as a mural community, the town commissioned two Bee City murals to highlight its commitment to protecting pollinators and pollinator-friendly habitats.

The first mural, led by artist Shandelle McCurdie with members of the community invited to help paint the mural, was unveiled in David Onley Park. Shandelle’s design concept allowed for community members of all ages and all artistic levels to participate in this project. 

“We are proud to be a Bee City and to feature our community’s commitment to protecting  pollinators through these beautiful new murals,” said Mayor Stewart Strathearn. “Midland is  known as a mural community, and it’s wonderful to unveil this new mural that the community  helped create.” 

The second Bee City mural is an intergenerational endeavour with residents of Georgian Village, King Place and local high school students working together to complete the painting. It will be installed in Little Lake Park in spring 2022.

The town received financial support from the County of Simcoe to assist with some of the costs associated with the project.
