Hamilton's Boon Street Art Festival brings mystery murals to library, council building, city wall

Mystery murals will be splashed on three central Hamilton sites in an upcoming festival.

Hamilton Central Library - in the city's main square - will get a facelift through Boon Street Art Festival, as will Hamilton City Council's chambers wing.

"I can't wait to see the transformation of the library frontage in to a standout, vibrant, high impact building in a key central space," Hamilton Central Business Association general manager Vanessa Williams said.

"It will easily identifiable to the public and will provide a key point of reference to visitors to the city."

A small wall facing Anglesea Street will also get the Boon treatment during the festival, which runs March 15 to 17.
