The Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association and the Art Gallery of Windsor have partnered to present two temporary installations in Arts Alley, the alleyway that runs between Ouellette Avenue and Pelissier Street.

“The Art Gallery of Windsor is delighted to work with DWBIA and other members of the Downtown Districting Committee to enliven Downtown Windsor through the power of art,” said AGW Executive Director Jennifer Matotek. “These presentations of artworks in Downtown are the first of many projects we have up our sleeves in the coming months.”

The first piece, that was installed on Friday, is an 8′ equestrian statue. The untitled creation, by artist Max Streicher, was gifted to the Art Gallery of Windsor by Leon Liffman in 2020. It is a vinyl and motor installation that measures 250 x 190 x 130 cm, and will be mounted on the northern most façade of Pelissier Street Parking Garage.

The other piece, by artist Amos Paul Kennedy Jr., was commissioned by the AGW this year, and is entitled Posters from North of the Border. It is a 16’ x 16’ poster installation, and will also be mounted at the Pelissier Street Parking Garage, and is visible from Ouellette Avenue.

“These pieces are spectacularly stunning, and are meant to elicit curiosity, engagement and excitement,” says DWBIA Chair Brian Yeomans. “They will be a remarkable, even if only temporary, addition to the downtown landscape.”
