First Nations Mural

I took photos of these breathtaking native murals on a recent walk through downtown Victoria (my home town). 

They're part of a 250-metre long panel of First Nations murals that were erected in a celebratory countdown to the completion of an 11-year-old undertaking to clean up the very toxic land and seabed of Rock Bay.

The murals, running along Pembroke and Government Street, are a reminder to keep our land clean and healthy. They were painted by 16 members of a First Nations youth group and were based on the designs of  Butch Dick and Darlene Gait.

They are absolutely stunning and bring a much-needed beauty to a less-than-pristine area of our city.

Enjoy!

  4. Hi Barb, I love the murals. The colours are so vibrant. We recently had a walk know as Five Lands Walk, along the coast near where I live. There were various artworks to view along the way. You would have enjoyed it I'm sure.
    Hoping to start blogging again and popped over to review your tutorials. They helped me so much when I started blogging and I am so rusty that I can't even remember how to add a link to my signature. My old computer 'died' and I am now using a Macbook air. we are learning to be friends! Hope you have been well.
