Public Art – Ford City Mural SurveyThe Culture team is in the process of finding a new home for some public art murals in Ford City – specifically at this time, “Shift Change” by artist Steven Johnson. The piece examines the auto industry’s incredible success that created a boomtown climate on Drouillard Road. In its heyday, the neighbourhood bore daily witness to thousands of workers spilling from the gates that connected it to Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited. This mural’s depiction of workers exiting the Whelpton gate was inspired by a photo taken in the 1950s by local photographer Fred Lazurek. The mural was recently removed from its former home on Whelpton Street in Windsor to make way for exciting renovations to the building where it previously hung. It is currently in storage awaiting a new home. Take the Survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.
