Local artists Katherine Sunita and Melissa Parkins led the community in painting wooden honeycomb shapes, infusing them with unique designs inspired by gardens and pollinators. These completed honeycombs are now being assembled to form a vibrant mural at the St. Catharines Public Library during Culture Days.

The mural will incorporate an innovative interactive element, inviting the community to actively participate in the artwork’s ongoing evolution. Community members will have the opportunity to interchange honeycombs, conjuring fresh iterations of the mural that reflect their own creative spirit.
