Burlington residents will have an exciting opportunity to celebrate Canada 150 when the Canada 150 Mosaic Mural comes to town in May 2017. The Canada 150 Mosaic Mural Project will bring together 150 communities and thousands of participants to create community murals that celebrate Canada’s unique history and culture.
Burlington’s mural will be composed of 400 tiles, each measuring four inches square. From May 21 – 22, 2017, Burlington residents are invited to paint their own tile that will become part of the mural.
How to Participate:
Drop into one of the community painting days to paint your tile. Everyone is welcome – you do not need to be an artist to participate.
There are only 400 tiles so come early to make sure you get to paint one…first come, first served basis.
