Urban Canvas Project beautifies Regina alleys

The Regina Downtown Business Improvement District unveiled the 2020 edition of the Urban Canvas project.

13 artists were selected to produce a unique design for doors in the back alley between Hamilton and Scarth Streets in Regina’s downtown.

RDBID manager for visitor services Lindsay Desrochers says there’s a number of reasons why this is an important program.

“Part of it is to, obviously, support local, national, and international artists, but also part of it is to deter graffiti in the downtown which tends to be a little bit higher than in other areas of the city,” said Desrochers. “We’ve seen great success with that.”

This is the third phase of the urban canvas program.
