High River, AB: The Town’s Arts and Culture Advisory Committee (ACAC) is seeking feedback from the public regarding High River’s 15 existing murals that depict significant people and historic events.
“We are about to unveil two brand new murals in June and we are just looking for some thoughts, ideas and opinions from people on the ongoing maintenance of these murals going forward,” says Kim Unger, parks planning supervisor with the Town.
A survey has been created and will be open from Monday, May 30 until Friday, June 10. Residents, businesses, property owners and visitors are all encouraged to share their thoughts to help the ACAC determine if there is a need for an ongoing maintenance plan, and if so, how should the Committee fund this plan.
“It’s important to keep in mind the emotional significance that these murals have,” adds Unger. “It is also important to understand that maintaining these murals over the long term will require funding and support.”
