Crosswalk Hapeville

The city has chosen a finalist for the Hapeville Pride Crosswalk.

Update: 10/8/21 Briana Howard told Neighbor News that due to paint supply shortages, the crosswalk will be postponed. Currently, there is no definitive date for completion. 

In September, The city of Hapeville opened applications for an artist to create a new pride crosswalk for the LGBTQ+ community. However, the deadline was extended to “publish the call to a broader audience.”

Since then, the city has chosen a finalist for the Hapeville Pride Crosswalk.

“We were able to narrow it down to five finalist and have since selected the artist who will complete the project.” said Main Street & Grants Coordinator, Bianca Howard.

Howard said the crosswalk should be completed in the first week of November, if weather permits. It will be at the Dearborn Plaza parking lot between Tara Club and Corner Tavern. No formal announcement has been made as of yet.

Hapeville’s goal is to commemorate and support the LGBTQ+ community and reflect a welcoming city, stating that artwork should be reflective of such.

The crosswalk will also build on the city’s continuing effort to increase public art for economic and community development, while enhancing tourism and trade.
