Harmsworth Lane (2023)
The City in partnership with STEPs installed two vibrant murals to revitalize Harmsworth Lane in June 2023 as part of the Activate Downtown Brampton (ADB) program. Vibrancy in Harmsworth Lane, the mural done by artist Ashley Beerdat on the concrete knee wall along 16 John St., celebrates Brampton as an inviting vibrant and urban city by using bright and vivid imagery of plants native to Brampton including roses, honeysuckle, speckled elder, little bluestem, black medic, alfalfa, and cheese weed.
Growth, located on the back stairwell of the building was done by artist Chelsea Charles, explores the relationship between the Flower City Brampton’s landscape and its citizens. With the city’s diversity being Chelsea’s main influence, the mural uses bold and bright colours to showcase the unique cultures, traditions, and experiences that make Brampton such a special place.
