2017 Downtown Mural Project
The downtown mural will be unveiled during the Summer Block Party and will commemorate and celebrate Orillia’s 150th anniversary. The public art mural will aim to positively transform and revitalize Downtown Orillia while bringing Orillians together through art. The mural will highlight the identity and character of Orillia, encourage other community artwork and express who we are as a city through dynamic, vibrant artwork. The DOMB and City of Orillia, Parks, Recreation & Culture is excited to see this public art mural come to life in downtown and are looking forward to seeing the story of our people, of our city and of past and present events come to life in this mural in a unique and lively way.
