Somnium (the Face)

South Railway entrance to Tunnel Vision

North Railway St Side — In a rail town, it’s only fitting that a rail yard separates the city’s downtown in two. To connect the two districts, an underground tun- nel was constructed. The bright colours of this abstract, motion-inspiredmural invites you to take your journey one step further. There are no wrong side of the tracks here. This piece, titled Tunnel Vision, was completed by artists Will Oskam and Josh Creighton . Tunnel Interior —Medicine Hat’s down- town tunnel has been transformed into a showcase for dozens of local graffiti artists , sponsored and vetted by the Medicine Hat-based Pop Up Parks organi- zation. As with all art, it starts underground before emerging for the world to see.

Asil Petr This piece was created by Mediah who has nearly 25 years of street art experi- ence, and is represented by Los Angeles- based Can’t Be Stopped, one of themost respected street art labels in the world. Mediah’s work can be found across Canada and the United States, and as far away as Barcelona, Sao Baulo, and Johannesburg.

Vehicle Underpass One of themost striking murals is also one of the easiest tomiss. Mereminutes from the Riverside Veteran’s Memorial Park, this bright, colourful mural was lead by street artist Doktoer and Jesse Gouchey , as an homage tomissing andmurdered indig- enous women. Across Canada, there are hundreds of unsolved cases of murdered or missing indigenous women where the RCMP say there was no foul play. This mu- ral is a reminder that all life has value, and wemust not turn a blind eye to injustice.
