The project is a group effort with the goal of contributing to the beautification and revitalization of the village of Fitch Bay, key elements in enhancing quality of life in that particular heritage area of the Townships. The project is to paint a permanent mural of artistic and heritage importance. We have located a commercial wall in the middle of the village, a highly visible location that would make a wide impact on this small community and serve to foster their cultural identity.
To promote the cultural heritage of this community, we have chosen the Narrows Bridge as the theme of the mural. The Narrows Bridge is a covered bridge located in Fitch Bay and serves as an important landmark in the area that has been well documented over the years. Le ministère de la Culture et des Communications recognized the bridge as an Immeuble patrimonial classé in 2019.
This bridge is located in a most privileged place, surrounded with remarkable beauty. There are plans to have it repainted in 2019 by the municipality.
