City of Lloydminster Commissions Canada 150 Mural

LLOYDMINSTER, AB/SK - The City of Lloydminster has approved the commission of a Canada 150 legacy project that will engage hundreds of residents in crafting a permanent mural within the community.

The nation-wide art project aims to create murals in 150 communities across Canada, each consisting of hundreds of four-by-four inch tiles painted by residents and assembled by Mural Mosaic, an Alberta art firm.

Each mural is designed as a single piece of a Canada-wide whole, with a unifying railway theme acknowledging the railway’s role in connecting Canada. If it were joined, the entire project would span over 365 metres. 

“This project provides an incredible opportunity to share our distinct history and culture, and illustrate how Lloydminster is interwoven into the larger narrative of Canada,” said Mayor Gerald Aalbers. “We look forward to working with residents and community partners to create a lasting piece that residents both present and future can be proud of.”

Council and Administration have agreed to form a Community Committee to determine the location and size of the mural. The City will look to community partners and residents for donations in exchange for personalized tiles to offset the potential cost of $15,000.

Further engagement on this project will follow through the City of Lloydminster website and social media channels.
