I remember the week in June when the face of Algoma literally changed forever. Driving north on 4th Street on Thursday, I noticed clusters of people gathered around groups of artists along the street. I made a right on Steele Street where more people were gathered. The next evening I drove downtown to check on the progress and the crowds were bigger than before. I bought an ice cream cone and joined the fun. Downtown Algoma was alive and the sense of excitement in the air that day was almost breathable. Three days later, ten brand new works of art graced our buildings and as recently as today, people are still driving by the murals admiring the artwork created during the Wall Dog Wave.
