The Canada 150 Mosaic Mural
The residents of the Town of Pelham created a Canada 150 Mural Mosaic in 2017 symbolizing our community canada150mosaic.com/producing-a-mural/. The Pelham Art Festival and Pelham's community painted tiles to celebrate Canada's birthday.
Each province and territory across Canada participated, creating murals that added to the sections of the massive coast to coast unified mosaic mural connecting Canada through art, and forming the ultimate visual time capsule that creates a legacy for a proud nation. Throughout Canada this equates to 100,000's tiles that has comprised an overall image of train cars connecting Canadians from far and wide.
Mural mosaic 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 have been orchestrating collaborative murals around North America involving artists and non-artists alike from all over the world.
