Canada 150 Mosaic Mural

Canada 150 Mosaic Mural

Coming May 2017 to The Blue Mountains

This May residents will have the opportunity to join 150 communities across Canada in creating community murals for the Canada 150 Mosaic Mural Project.  The Canada 150 Mosaic Mural will be one of the biggest collaborative murals ever created in Canadian history and will unite Canadians from coast to coast.

The Canada 150 Mosaic Mural Project is led by internationally recognized artist Lewis Lavoie and his Mural Mosaic Team based out of Alberta.  To follow the mural’s progress across Canada, visit the Canada 150 Mosaic website.

The Blue Mountains’ mural will be composed of 400 tiles, each measuring 4 inches square.  Residents are invited to participate in painting workshops to create their own tile that will become part of the mural.  No painting skill is necessary, the workshops are free and all materials are provided.       

How to Participate

Register for a spot in one of the painting workshop sessions.  Each session can accommodate 30 participants.  Group booking are encouraged.  Workshops will take place at the Beaver Valley Community Centre (58 Alfred Street West, Thornbury).
