Have you seen the Charlottetown Mural Mosaic yet? The piece, made up of hundreds of painted tiles, was created as part of the City of Charlottetown’s Canada 150 celebrations.
The stunning art piece can be viewed by the public at City Hall (199 Queen Street) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the summer and 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the fall/winter months.
The Mural Mosaic concept began in 2003 and was founded by the trio of Lewis Lavoie, Paul Lavoie and Phil Alain. Lead by renowned artist Lewis Lavoie, the trio is based out of St. Albert, AB and has been orchestrating collaborative murals around North America involving artists and non-artists alike from all over the world. As part of the Canada 150 celebrations, the trio launched a bold undertaking; over a two-year span, they are creating more than 80,000 paintings and 150 individual murals across Canada to act as a visual time capsule to inspire future generations. The 150 murals, when pieced together, make up a train. To view all of the murals, visit: www.Canada150mosaic.com
The City of Charlottetown partnered with the Mural Mosaic team and invited the public to participate in the creation of this legacy project. It was officially unveiled in Victoria Park as part of the Canada Day celebrations. The mural will reside at City Hall for public viewing.
