Canada 150 Mosaic Mural
Check out the Pitt Meadows Canada 150 Mosaic Mural!
Did you paint a tile on Pitt Meadows Day as part of our community’s Canada 150 Mosaic Mural? Over 800 residents participated in the painting event, each painting a 4”x4” tile that makes up the mural that was officially unveiled on Canada Day during Pitt Meadows’ Canada 150 celebrations. The Pitt Meadows mural features some key icons of the community, including the Heritage Hall, agricultural fields, the heron and many more details residents will recognize.
The mural hangs permanently on the north exterior wall of City Hall. Come and check it out and find your tile!
About the Canada 150 Mosaic Project
As Canada celebrates its 150th birthday this year, there are numerous events planned across the country. The City of Pitt Meadows partnered with the Canada 150 Mosaic Project to mark this milestone.
Each community participating in the project will create their own community mural, representing how their community fits into the larger mosaic of Canadian history. The mural stays in the community as a standalone project and legacy of the Canada 150 celebration. However, each community mural is based on a train design, so if all 150 community murals were connected, it would create a train of visual mosaics of Canadian history, stretching over 365 metres wide (4 football fields) and 2.5 metres high (8 feet).
The Pitt Meadows Mural
The community submitted ideas on what our mural should look like and include, and the Mosaic Mural team created the mural design. Then on Pitt Meadows Day, over 800 residents participated in the painting event, each painting a 4"x4" tile that became part of our community mosaic mural! The mural was officially unveiled on Canada Day at our Canada 150 celebrations, and became a part of the public art in our community!
