The Run for the Arts 5k brings race participants through several neighborhoods that have identified spaces for murals. These murals will be created by local artists who submitted their designs during the open application process in March 2023. The successful artists will receive payment for their designs, as well as funding to support the execution of their concept.
Three sites have been identified as location for murals, local residents and business owners having offered their properties, free of charge:
1 – Belvin’s Variety on Happy Valley Road, at intersection with Cherry Hill
2- Pembroke Laundromat on Parsons Road: 35ft wall adjacent to laundromat, leading to Rambling Lane
3 – Pembroke Park Playground Bathroom on Parsons Road, opposite the newly built Transformational Living Centre for Families
2023’s successful muralists have been selected by a committee including race organiser and artist Nhuri Bashir, representatives of Bermuda National Gallery and selected community stakeholders.
