No Parking Mural
This downtown mural is called “No Parking” and was painted by Kelly Wright in 2018. This impressive mural of a massive grizzly bear took four weeks to complete. Following the completion, the KCBIA held our second Back Alley Block Party where members of the community were invited to throw paint filled water balloons at the wall. Afterward, the artist used the colour from the splattered paint to fill in the beautiful grizzly bear pictured above. The “No Parking” mural is an important addition to the collection of murals because it commemorates our second downtown block party. This piece of art is unique as members of the community were presented with an opportunity to help in the creation.
If you’d like to see more work done by Kelly Wright, follow this link to her website. Wright has been involved in the creation of a number of murals in the downtown Kamloops area. Another mural done by Wright is History of Brewing located on the side of Red Collar Brewing.
