Mid-Sun Fence Art

It might have been a cold day in September of 2018, but that didn’t stop the Mid-Sun Community Association from brightening up the community. Fifteen residents dedicated their time to transform a chain link fence into a work of art. The Mid-Sun Fence Art spans a section of a fence located on Sun Valley Boulevard and helps to calm traffic. The art was created using coloured chain link “cups” that fit into the links of the fence. As the art was being installed, the coordinators noticed the excitement and pride that it brought to the volunteers and builders.

The art now serves as a beautiful focal point within the Midnapore and Sundance communities. The $750 ActivateYYC grant was used towards purchasing the chain link cups. Since this project was built on public land, the community association needed to have the art approved by the City of Calgary and get a permit in order to install the art.
