“The talent line-up for this festival absolutely blows my mind. It’s one thing for artists to donate their time for festivals in places with populations in the millions, like LA and Hong Kong, …but Windsor?! The fact that Dan Bombardier has been able to rally world-class artists to come to our small city is a testament to his character and drive. Free For All Walls will transform Windsor into an art destination for the world to see.” - Jeff Denomme (Haunted Zoo), participating muralist
Free For All Walls (F4AW) is a large-scale public mural and art project that was started in 2012 in downtown Windsor by artist Daniel Bombardier (Denial). Since its inception, F4AW has undertaken and completed upwards of 45 mural projects. This year, the mural project returns with dozens of new murals that will transform underutilized areas of the city that have been subject to vandalism, neglect or disrepair. Works will be completed in high-traffic, high-visibility areas to maximize exposure. These works, created by local and world-renowned artists, will be a positive gesture to the city, bringing lasting character, energy and beauty to Windsor. Updates for F4AW can be found on freeforallwalls.com, Facebook and Instagram (@freeforallwalls).
