Olde Riverside BIA Murals

The Riverside Mural Project began in 2007 with agreements between the Federal Government, City of Windsor and the Olde Riverside Town Centre Business Association. A Nautical Theme was selected for the murals after research was completed and included French Canadian strip farming, rum running in the 1920s and the the style of Art Nouveau. Data was collected along with vintage photos from several sources including Times Publishing, Windsor Community Museum, the Municipal Archives and two private collectors whose ancestors farmed in the area. The City of Windsor Art Studio researched, planned, designed, painted and installed the five murals within our Business Association.

The project took 52 weeks to complete and the murals are located at 5415 Wyandotte (Thompson side), 5520 Wyandotte, 5640 Wyandotte, 5850 Wyandotte, 5869 Wyandotte and 5989 Wyandotte (Glidden side). The two Murals located at Glidden and Thompson depict the Compass Rose and Sailboat which has been the insignia for the Business Association since its inception. These β€œlogos” are three dimensional and mark the entrances to the Business Association.

Address: Riverside Dr. E., Windsor, ON
