Walk ‘The 400’ Gallery, is a temporary installation of artwork to showcase local artists, promote creativity and enhance our beautiful waterfront.
The Gallery is located along the waterfront Promenade at the end of Hurontario Street and is named after a road within the Collingwood Shipyards that was once nicknamed ‘The 400’ to describe the daily flow of workers and shipbuilding materials that travelled its length. ‘The 400’ ran parallel to today’s Promenade, directly beneath the Yard’s cranes that were located approximately 100 feet west of the water’s edge.
Works by artists Tava Gray and Blaze Wiradharma are the first to be displayed at the Gallery. Their newest pieces are the result of a “Mural Slam” held during the Collingwood Art Crawl on September 24th, where artists took on the challenge of creating two eight foot square murals in less than 4 hours.
The Gallery space is generously provided by FRAM for all residents to enjoy and will be maintained through the Town’s Public Art Program.
Pen and chalk artist Caylee Fehr created the hand lettered signage for the Gallery
