Aboriginal Artists in Communities

 

 


 


I am currently working on a billboard mural project,  3- 8' x16' murals along highway 17.


There are three phases to the overall project.  The first phase is gathering research and meeting with local community members from Blind River, Bruce Mines, Batchewana and Garden River First Nation.


The concept is a collaboration that community members voice what is important to them and see that these images are conveyed in such a way to stay true to their ideas.  


During the drawing stage of the project I will be inviting community members who have shared their ideas to give their feedback on the drawings before embarking on the final murals. 


In the spring/ summer months I will be painting the murals and then they will be installed at various locations from Blind River to Echo Bay.

 

 

The project has been generously funded by the Ontario Arts Council.
