Heading Dockside | By Beverley Smith, 2000 | Huron Street and Ste Marie Street
A painting honouring the shipbuilding industry which was the lifeline of Collingwood for 100 years. The workers, many of whom spent their lifetime at the shipyard, are depicted heading to work.
Five heritage murals were commissioned between 1999 and 2001 featuring culture, people and events from the Collingwood community’s past. In 2016, three new murals were mounted at Walk the 400 Gallery, a temporary art installation at the waterfront promenade.
The murals are maintained by the Town’s Public Art Program.
