Mural Projects Unveiled
Prince George, B.C. – Two murals created to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, have been officially unveiled in Prince George.
The Canada 150 Patchwork mural ( shown above) is the result of contributions by people from all over the community who took time to paint something on the 1,375 clay tiles that were created by the PG Potters Guild. Residents were asked to paint a tile expressing their connection to Prince George.
” As you can imagine there is an incredible diversity of images, with wildlife, nature, and sports/leisure activities as prominent themes” says Joanne Mikkelsen, Studio Director for the PG Potters Guild.
The finished mural is now installed on the concourse of CN Centre near Section G
The other tile mural is the Canada 150 Mosaic which is one of 150 installed in communities across the country. Each of the 150 has a mural that depicts a rail car, and a feature of the community. In the case of Prince George, it’s Mr. P.G. in a reclining position, and a Moose ( see photo at right)
The Canada 150 Mosaic is located in the Kin Atrium.
Both projects were part of the City of Prince George’s Canada 150 celebrations that were funded by the Government of Canada.
