“Inspire Our Future” is our community’s public art project sponsored by Calgary Arts Development that features and supports local artists. It is a grassroots awareness and beautification plan that extends the HVCA’s Local Area History.

The project will create art based on two specific themes and transfer that art onto vinyl graphics for wrapping traffic light utility boxes and outdoor community refuse bins throughout the community.

Installing this art helps to keep our community vibrant, and directly promotes and supports four local artists in our community by providing multiple public platforms to showcase their work. The HVCA’s beautification committee has chosen vinyl wrapping instead of direct surface painting to increase the art’s outdoor durability. We hope that it helps to promoting pride and wellness within our community.
