Public Art Project: #Art_Trees of Oro-Medonte
In June, 2022, the Township announced that our Craighurst Public Art Project was selected for the My Main Street Community Activator program as part of a $3.5-million investment by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), and has received funding to create and install unique and beautiful seven-foot sculptures at seven business locations in the village of Craighurst. The trees were designed and fabricated locally by David Smith of Oro Design, following a call for artists and a juried competition, seven local artists have been selected to visually enhance the large metal sculptures. One small version of the sculptures was created to promote the program and was completed by Meg Leslie, artist and the project coordinator.
