Canada 150 Mural Mosaic
Start date: 25 May, 2017
End date: 1 July, 2017
In 2017, Canada will turn 150 years old. It is a country that has welcomed the world through its borders.
To celebrate this birthday, the Mural Mosaic team is launching a bold undertaking. Over a two year span, the trio plan to create a mural including all provinces and territories, over 80,000 paintings and 150 individual murals that when united will form one gigantic mural mosaic. The mural, if ever connected would be over 365 meters wide (4 football fields) x 2.5 meters high.
Workshops will be held in Okotoks for our community mural on Thursday, May 25 and Friday, May 26 at the Rotary Performing Arts Centre.
Nature of the Project Reach
This project will be open to participants from Okotoks and all citizens of the surrounding Municipality of Foothills.
To engage the community in the creation of the mural by having 750 members of the community contribute to the painting of the small tiles which make up the larger mural.
