Unveiling of Swift Current's contribution to the Canada 150 mosaic project, Sept. 30, 2017

Written by 

The community of Swift Current's contribution to the Canada 150 Mosaic project was unveiled at Market Square, Sept. 30. The mural consists of 400 tiles that were assembled to reflect the theme of wind. Three wind turbines in a rural landscape and colourful kites in a clear blue sky are prominent features of the mural. Community members had an opportunity to participate in the project during a tile painting event at Market Square from Aug. 18-20, when they painted images on individual tiles. The completed mural will be installed on an exterior wall at City Hall and it will face towards the Frank Rempel Centennial Plaza across the street. The Canada 150 Mosaic project is a national initiative to celebrate the country's cultural and geographical diversity during Canada's 150th birthday. Over 80,000 paintings and 150 murals will be created and each community mural will be installed in the town or city where it was created.
