Canada 150 Mosaic Unveiling Party
October 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
In 2017 Canada will turn 150 years old. The Canada 150 Mosaic Project is an ambitious initiative where a team of professional and non-professional artists will create a mural including all provinces and territories, over 80,000 paintings and 150 individual murals that, when united, will form one gigantic mural mosaic. This mural, if ever connected, would be over 365 meters wide (the equivalent of four football fields)!
The nation-wide mural will represent a cultural mosaic, a time capsule, a visual portrayal of history, an art masterpiece from the soul of the nation.
Only five to fifteen communities per province were eligible to participate in this collaborative mural mosaic and Airdrie is one of them!
During AB Culture Days, 450 Airdrie residents will take part in community painting workshops during which they will each paint a small tile. All tiles will then be assembled into a large mural mosaic that represents Airdrie.
Come to the unveiling party at Nosecreek Park to see Airdrie’s unique Canada 150 masterpiece!
