Sturgeon County gets creative with Centennial Mosaic Mural Project
Morinville, Alberta - Sturgeon County is looking to the community to help create a Mosaic Mural celebrating Sturgeon County’s Centennial! Participants will be asked to paint an individual tile representing their thoughts about Sturgeon County from their own perspective. Each tile painting will become an important piece of the mural to symbolize the Centennial for Sturgeon County.
“This is collaboration at its finest between Lewis Lavoie, his team and the Sturgeon County community. We want this to be something people will be proud of when they can look at the finished product and know they helped create a beautiful legacy item.” said Mayor, Alanna Hnatiw.
The Mosaic Mural Project led by internationally recognized artist Lewis Lavoie and his Mural Mosaic team will bring together 600 to 800 participants to create a mural that will reflect the history of Sturgeon County. The mural will be composed of numerous tiles to create an 8 x 16 mural.
Workshops will be hosted May 5, 12 and June 9 and 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each workshop will include four segments of approximately 45 minutes long.
Residents are asked to pre-register for the workshops online at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/sturgeon-county-mural-mosaic-workshops-tickets-44372885495
The Sturgeon County mural will also be recognized as part of the Canada 150 Mosaic Mural Project. The official public unveiling of Sturgeon County’s mural will take place at the Centennial Event on Saturday, September 8 at Cardiff Park.
Following the event, the mural will be on exhibit at Sturgeon County Centre in the main lobby.
