Jazz - Art finalist - official rendering

Public Art Winner – “Crescendo” (Rising Wave):  The City of Burlington’s Public Art Program has selected a design proposal entitled “Crescendo” (Rising Wave) for a site on the north side Plains Road between the new Jazz development and Maplehurst School. The artist, Lilly Otasevic says “The sculpture’s converging and diverging shape represents a hub of activity in the community. These characteristics serve to represent a contemporary as well as an historical context to Aldershot Village. The wave shape reflects the connection to the bay, water as an essential vehicle for the initial progress of this community and ultimately the connection to Brown’s wharf where it all began”. Installation of this piece of public art will take place upon completion of construction at the Jazz condominium. More than $65,000 was raised for the project in a joint effort between the City, Branthaven Homes, the Plains Road Village Vision group and individual donors.

 

Signal Box - Francis - BHS1 - May 2015

Photo Art on Plains  Thanks to Aldershot resident David Craig and to the Burlington Historical Society for the latest “wrap-around” art on Plains Road. You can see it at the south / east corner of Plains and Francis where the grey utility box has been wrapped with an historic photo of old Aldershot. This latest ‘wrap-around” is sponsored by the Historical Society. Two earlier “wrap-arounds” (at Shadeland and King) were sponsored by the Aldershot Community Honour Roll. The “wrap-around” project is just the latest in a series of steps aimed at dressing up Aldershot’s main street.
