To celebrate Canada 150, Quest Art School + Gallery will undertake a large-scale community-building art project with the outcome of four murals created for the municipalities of Midland, Penetanguishene, Tay and Tiny.
This evening Community input from residents of Penetanguishene is taking place in Brian Orser Hall in the Penetanguishene Memorial Community Centre, 6 Maria Street at 7pm
Each mural will speak to the history of the community in the context of the Canada 150 celebrations and will reference the other murals through common design elements. Local citizens from each community will participate in developing the mural concepts and history depicted and also in the painting of the murals. The project will also include an interactive component that will link viewers of the murals, via their mobile devices, to two-minute videos, available in both official languages. The murals will be officially unveiled on Canada Day 2017. The creation of these murals will also be recorded with still images and video which will be compiled into a 20-minute documentary.
