Background on the murals per the HRM Media Advisory (November 20, 2007): "The project is a partnership between HRM Community Development, the Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission, the Waterfront Development Corporation, and local artists.

The murals are painted on two building facades in Dartmouth Cove. One building is occupied by Yachtsmith's International and the other is the former Associated Marine Building. Both face the new Harbour Front Trail, which is nearing completion on the Dartmouth waterfront.

The murals, which are 300 feet and 100 feet in length, are two of the largest created under the community art program."
