Have your say about three finalists for Burlington’s Mountainside pool mural


Published February 6, 2023 at 12:13 pm

The City of Burlington has narrowed the options to paint a new mural on Mountainside outdoor pool to three.

And now they’re looking for public input before the final decision is made.

Residents can go here until Monday, Feb. 20, to view and comment on the mural concepts.

“On behalf of the Steering Committee, I would like to thank the 45 artists and groups who submitted a proposal for this project,” said Angela Paparizo, manager of Arts and Culture.

“And thank you to the Steering Committee who had no easy task narrowing the amazing submissions down to three final artists who have created preliminary designs to help us choose the final piece.”

“We are excited for the finalist to design and create a beautiful mural for the revitalized Mountainside Pool. But first, we are asking the community to share their thoughts on these three final designs. It is my hope that Burlington residents will get involved in this opportunity to share their feedback on the mural submissions for Mountainside Pool.”

Three artists have been shortlisted and have created preliminary design concepts for the public to review and offer comments. The community steering committee will evaluate the public feedback plus the technical proposal to select the winning artist.

The three finalists for the Mountainside Pool Public Art mural are:

  • Clear Eyes Collective: Take a Step
  • Jomae: Currents
  • Megan Oldhues: The Woodlot’s Edge Through our Children’s Lens

Once the three proposed artwork concepts have been reviewed, feedback may be submitted on one or all three designs using comment boxes. These comments, along with the technical and design proposals will inform the jury’s final selection.
