After Nature Banners Back by Popular Demand

Halton Hills, ON – The popular ‘After Nature’ banner series by artist Ingrid Mayrhofer will be reinstalled to enliven the downtowns of Acton, Georgetown, and Dominion Gardens Park this spring.


Originally installed at the beginning of the pandemic last year, the banners served as a symbol of optimism during a challenging time and received tremendous positive response from residents. Due to requests from the community, the Town is reinstalling the banners in three locations.


“The ‘After Nature’ banners are a vibrant outdoor art exhibition that I hope will raise the spirits of Halton Hills residents as they continue to feel the impacts of COVID-19,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette. “These banners bring art to our streets to make them more engaging as well as demonstrating the Town’s commitment to climate change through their representation of at-risk species.”


‘After Nature’ is a temporary art banner project consisting of seven designs responding to the themes of climate change and at-risk species. The banners incorporate both the natural and built environments and include iconic Halton Hills buildings, as well as flora and fauna native to Ontario. While many of these species are on the endangered list, they are still present in the region’s natural areas. With these images, Mayrhofer celebrates Halton Hills’ built history while simultaneously drawing attention to the fragility of the future of our natural environment.
