Live Re-Painting

Saturday June 6, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm | Free

How would you paint the benches in Dundonald Park?

Join artist Mique Michelle and youth participants from Ottawa Innercity Ministries’ Passion for Youth Fine Arts Program (P4Y) as they repaint 10 park benches in Dundonald Park.

This live painting event is the culmination of a year-long community consultation process initiated by the Centretown Community Health Centre and the Ottawa Art Gallery, which asked: How would you paint the benches in Dundonald Park? The answers guided the creation of 10 unique and colourful bench designs.

Stop by and say hello, and learn more about the project and the park. The Great-West Life OAG Art Tent will be onsite with shade, snacks, and activities for everyone, and several local community groups will also be present to kickoff another great summer season of events in Dundonald Park. 

Funded by the City of Ottawa's Paint It Up! program, administered by Crime Prevention Ottawa.
