A temporary public art project that brings original works by local and regional artists to patios throughout the downtown.
With patio fencing serving as a canvas,
Brightening Barriers offers an opportunity to turn the “barrier" of imposed separation into a collective artistic experience. This project supports visual artists by highlighting regional artists and original works of art. This project is organized by the
Barrie Public Art Committee.
Guided walking tours of the 2022 Brightening Barriers public art exhibition will be offered Saturday, July 9 at 11 am and 1 pm. Learn what arts and cultural events are happening in your city! Meet at Meridian Place at the Invest Barrie tent.
Nine restaurant patios in Barrie's downtown now have temporary art installations displayed on their patio fencing, and residents and visitors can explore downtown Barrie and support local businesses while appreciating the original works. The exhibition is on display until September 30, 2022.
