PBJ Design is excited for the infrastructure art projects to come to life in both Dartmouth and Halifax. We stumbled upon this idea when exploring placemaking projects by Tom Bob in New York City. Seeing his murals helped us recognize the creative potential in the pipes, vents, and protruding utility boxes on the sides of downtown buildings in Dartmouth and Halifax.

The playful murals will add whimsy to both downtown area. They will beautify parts of buildings that are usually considered eye-sores. We hope that the infrastructure art brings a smile to your face when you discover them around building corners. 

Have you seen a cool pipe, vent, or utility box that could be transformed into a quirky mural? Send us a picture.

Special thanks to the Downtown Halifax Business Commission for their support on this project through the Gritty to Pretty program.
