Beautification Initiative

Sidewalk art with a difference

Our sister island, Bonaire, is a beautiful island but suffers from the same old, same old lack of upkeep from the sectors who maintain public areas, as most islands do.


On some islands we see old walls being painted with colourful pictures. Here on St. Maarten/St. Martin the paintings certainly give a lift to otherwise dingy areas.

But what about the sidewalks. Some are uneven and are unsafe traps for the pedestrians who pass by.

In Bonaire a group of women have come up with a wonderful idea to fix the sidewalks not only making the area safer to walk on but beautifying it in a gorgeous and colourful way.

It has taken a group of women with inspired skills, a selection of colourful tiles, cement and the love of having things orderly and safe to head out on a Sunday morning and fix up those unsightly and unsafe pavement sections.

Pubic Art Work at its best!
