2017 Bus Shelter Wrap Gallery

2017 Bus Shelter Wraps

Bus Shelter Graphic Wraps

In partnership with the Communities in Bloom Committee, the Bus Shelter Graphic Wrap Program was initiated in 2014. The objective of this program is to enhance the beautification of our urban streetscapes, support and encourage the need for public art, and to deter vandalism of public property. Every other year, the program aims to showcase the region’s unique natural assets on various bus shelters.

Congratulations to the 2016 awarded artists: Jason Blundon, Sarah Smith and Alyssa Wallace! Their designs are now installed on 10 large bus shelters throughout Fort McMurray.

Traffic Cabinet Wraps

Initiated by the Public Works department and supported by the Community Strategies branch with consultation from the Municipal Public Art Committee, the objective of the Traffic Cabinet Wrap project is to deter graffiti vandalism by reducing the availability of blank space for tagging, while beautifying the community with public art created by its residents.

This project aligns with the Municipal Development Plan by supporting local arts and cultural programs and encouraging public art initiatives.

Downtown Historical Wraps

In the summer of 2017, we began installing graphic wraps on select traffic cabinets along Franklin Avenue. In total, 13 intersections will have a wrapped traffic cabinet showcasing a historical photo.

We worked closely with the Fort McMurray Heritage Society to select historical images from its archives.

This fall, selected photographs, artworks and digital displays from residents will be installed on 42 traffic cabinets located along Confederation Way, Thickwood Boulevard and MacKenzie Boulevard in Fort McMurray.
