Sims Insurance installs Lacombe’s newest mural

Artwork celebrates Lacombe’s agricultural history

Lacombe’s unique recognition of its local history continues to expand throughout the city.

A new mural has been installed on the sides of Sims & Associates Insurance Services, recognizing the communities deep agricultural roots.

Darren King, commercial insurance broker, said the team at Sims & Associates Insurance Services was eager to get on board with having their own mural

“We wanted to have a mural that was part of the community and similar to the other buildings in town,” he said.

Recognizing where Lacombe came from was the main idea behind the public art piece.

“We wanted to celebrate the roots of this town as a farming community,” he said.

After seeing the results of the piece created by Little John’s Air Brush Art, the staff at Sims was impressed.

“It is a great mural and a great piece. It turned out very well,” he said.

So well in fact that the community of Lacombe has recognized the addition online.

“It has been very positive and we have seen a lot of posts on social media saying they like the new mural in town,” he said.

Kind encourages other businesses to look into a mural if they don’t already have one.

“I would definitely recommend it. It took a little longer than we initially thought it would, but the results are pretty spectacular,” he said.
