Adding more colour to the PlatzlPosted: July 21, 2012

The City of Kimberley, together with the Kimberley Arts Council and the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce, is working to enhance the visual appeal of the Platzl through the Platzl Vitality Mural Project.

Local artists will design and paint window murals on the windows of vacant stores.  Vacant retail space affects business confidence as well as the overall perception of Kimberley as a healthy business community. These murals will provide an additional attraction to the Platzl as well as enhance the appearance of the vacant stores.

Artist Alexandra Demarchi designed and painted the first two windows in our series of murals.  The windows are in the former Carmel Cat location between the Gilded Goat and the Vicious Cycle Cleaners. Scroll down to see photos and watch for more murals to appear in the coming weeks!

Yesterday, working with local artist Mike Redfern, 10- year-old artist Alexandra finished painting murals on windows at 175 Deer Park Avenue, between the laundry matt and the Gilded Goat. Her efforts were honoured by the presence of Mayor Ron McRae and other city dignitaries.
