Celebrating Canada's 150th Through Art

In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday we are working on two public art projects that will off the opportunity for people in the community participate and enjoy what art brings to the community.

Both mural projects are inspired by the following themes:

  • belonging
  • inclusion
  • connection
  • reconciliation 

Bow Valley Mural Project

Youth from the Bow Valley will generate murals of the area's history and future by hearing stories from community members. Based on the youth’s creativity, the lead artists will design a collection of murals. There will be one mural painted in each of Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise, Exshaw and Morley. 

Get Involved - Workshops & Unveilings

Interested in sharing your history of the Bow Valley, conservation, art making, or sharing your ideas for the future? Join us for a series of workshops and conversations focused on street art and mural making from around the world. Find out more information on workshop dates and times by visiting the Community Calendar.

Celebrate the completion of each mural at the official unveilings in each community. For more information on the unveilings visit the Community Calendar.

Road Mural Project

This mural will be designed with a theme of strengthening community bonds. The mural will be painted on the road in front of the Civic Centre on 7th Ave. Residents will have the opportunity to be involved with painting the mural on the road.
