🎨🖌️We are so excited to announce the artists selected for a collaborative art mural that will be a centerpiece at this year’s festival. Presented by the Odlum Brown Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival and Kwantlen First Nation, the 98 square foot outdoor mural will be based on a design by two Kwantlen First Nation artists and brother and sister, Elinor Atkins and Noah Atkins.
🌈🦋The two Kwantlen First Nation artists were selected via a call for Kwantlen First Nation artist submissions. The selected artwork will be turned into a 7′ X 14′ image that will be mounted for the community to paint together at the Festival Art Zone on July 23rd and 24th.
🖌️The mural is intended to mark Canada’s emergence from the COVID-19 pandemic by having the community come together in person to create a collaborative piece that reflects the theme of reflection, recovery, and rejuvenation. We invite everyone to join us in the painting of this beautiful symbolic mural.🎨🦋
