Vegreville Mural Mosaic was revealed today!
Vegreville unveiled on the ATB Financial branch exterior wall, the 1st of 150 murals across Canada to celebrate our 150th b-day in 2017.
Lewis Lavoie and his partners Phil Alain and Paul Lavoie began the Mural Mosaic journey to bring communities together using their murals as examples of "Unity through Diversity". This is represented by bringing the uniqueness of individual creative styles together on numerous panels to create one united image. The most unique aspect of this artistic process is that artists are given an individual panel with the freedom to paint what they want within the "theme" of the mural subject, however, the final image created by Lavoie is kept secret until mural unveiling. Well today in Vegreville was the 1st Mural Mosiac reveiling. #Vegreville.
