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)
