Members of the Lakeshore Arts Advisory Committee installed Chain Link Fence Art at Optimist Park in Belle River.

The project was proposed to the committee by Lakeshore resident Renee Marentette, who led the project from idea, to planning amid COVID restrictions, all the way to scheduling of the install at Optimist Park.

Her hope was for the public to respond to new ways of seeing familiar places, enhance our relationship with spaces we share and bring joy after such a long and difficult winter.

Each heart was created using yarn, fabric, plastic, and recycled material to create a weave pattern in a portion of a fence.

Heart artists, in order left to right:

  • Joyful Heart: Renee Marentette, Arts Advisory Committee, Municipality of Lakeshore, retired
  • Lighthouse: Kelsey Santarossa, Ward 3, Councillor, Municipality of Lakeshore
