Sussex, New Brunswick!
THE MURAL CAPITAL OF ATLANTIC CANADA
Where History Comes Alive…on a grand scale
Make the Mural Capital of Atlantic Canada part of your travel plans this year! You’ll marvel at 27 panoramic scenes telling the larger-than-life stories at the heart of the Picture Province.
Internationally-renowned artists have captured our rich local history in vibrant colour throughout the communities of Sussex and Sussex Corner.
We invite you to visit this one-of-a-kind ‘outdoor art gallery’ where you can enjoy the stories of the region’s heritage, from its start as a Maliseet community to our proud role as a world leader today. Stroll amid New Brunswick giants of industry, sport and legend. Marvel at their courage, foresight and determination in detailed scenes sure to delight and amaze you. It’s storytelling at its best, and you’ll want to see every line.
The Sussex Murals are made possible through the King’s East Development Partnership Inc. (KEDP), a non-profit organization that fosters economic development in the Sussex area.
*Our website is accessible from your SMART Phone or tablet*
Murals bring a creative dimension into day-to-day life, and reach far beyond the scope of galleries and museums, which cater only to a minority. They can enhance otherwise ordinary architecture and bring a new dimension to a whole area.
Our latest phone app “Otocast” is now available for download from the Apple Store or the Google Play Store, allowing Android and Iphone users access to a visual and audio self guided tour of the murals.
MS Tag installation was completed on all murals in the fall of 2013, enabling SmartPhone and Tablet access to the Mural website description pages. Download the MS Tag software to your mobile unit, point your unit to scan the tag on the Mural you are in front of and you will immediately be taken to the full story!
Mural Walking Guides are also still available for those who prefer and enjoy printed information. The guide features a map and background on all 27 murals. Guides can be purchased for $2 each at Town Hall, the Visitor Information Centre at the train station, The General Store, The Soap Works, Sharp’s Drugstore and Crafters Vineyard, all located in the downtown Sussex area.
All fees collected are used 100% in the annual upkeep and maintenance of the Murals and this website.
