Hughes Lane Art Walk

The Hughes Lane Art Walk is created in partnership with the Uptown Waterloo BIA, City of Waterloo and local artists with funding from RT04’s Shareable Moment Challenge grants. It builds upon the existing mural project located on the side of the Uptown Waterloo Parkade. The Hughes Lane Art Walk supports the goals of the Uptown Public Realm Strategy as well as the City of Waterloo Culture Plan. Artists were invited to submit their proposals through an open call competition run by the City of Waterloo. The submissions were juried based on the quality, aesthetic appeal and connection to participating businesses (listed below). The doors were completed in mid-August of 2020.
