As part of investing in downtown and making it a great place for visitors and businesses alike, the Town of Taber has undertaken a mural project, thanks to grant funding from the Canada Community Revitalization Fund from the Government of Canada.
In collaboration with the property owners, six murals were installed on various businesses throughout downtown Taber. Read about the pieces and the artists below, and then take a look at them by walking downtown.
The murals all help tell the story of Taber. Take a close look at each mural and find the connections to our community, history, industries, and people through the eyes of the artists. Read more about the stories and interpretations below (photos to be added later).
Murals and other public art pieces are used in communities throughout the world to bring colour and beauty to various areas, and to draw people to particular areas. We hope that while you take a walk and see the murals for yourself, you will also drop in to our many businesses and see how they also help make downtown Taber such a vibrant place!
