What a whirlwind of activity!!
Yorkton's Canada 150 Mural Mosaic Project
600 people of all pages painted tiles in just over 2 days
 
As one of the dozens of communities across Canada participating in the Canada 150 Mosaic projectthe City of Yorkton and Godfrey Dean Art Gallery were proud to host painting sessions and inviting everyone to participate.
In just over two days, hundreds of school children and family members came to the Godfrey Dean Cultural Centre for one-hour workshops to create 600 tiles. At the peak time, there were over 70 people in the same session!
Schools included Dr. Brass, Dreambuilders, St. Michael's, Columbia, Yorkdale and St. Alphonsus plus community groups like Boys and Girls Club, SaskAbilities and the Cadets.
This mosaic portrayal of Yorkton consists of individual tiles painted with designs that visually depict what living in Yorkton means to each of us as individuals. The tiles form mural that's 8 feet tall and 14 feet wide that links us to the rest of Canada.
An announcement about unveiling the mural is coming soon!
