BELFAST — On Friday, July 9, after the outpouring of community excitement for the “As Unique as Belfast” crosswalk art project, Our Town Belfast releases limited-edition merchandise featuring the artwork. The release will be sold online for just two weeks and offers the opportunity to purchase items that prominently features the art from the recently installed crosswalks. Earlier this summer, five artists were selected to paint original crosswalks in downtown Belfast.

The project was inspired by previous related projects downtown. For many years the crosswalk from the Colonial Theatre to City Hall has been painted with “movie stars.” In 2017, the Pedestrian, Biking, and Hiking Committee (PBHC) installed paintings of chicken feet in the two crosswalks from Main Street to Washington Street.

“This is an exciting project for our community,” said Our Town Belfast Board Member and Design Committee Chair Pegi Miller. “It is a great match to goals for our design committee, to beautify and encourage the use of downtown public spaces.”

From July 9 through July 23, visit ourtownbelfast.itemorder.com/sale to purchase limited-edition merchandise.  All proceeds go to support Our Town Belfast.
