18 students enrolled in this year’s mural course were busy painting this new mural outside the Landmark District Market throughout July and August. The mural was celebrated on Thursday, August 17, 2023. This is the fourth mural painted by UBCO’s Visual Arts students who collaborated with instructors David and Jorden Doody to paint a colourful, large-scale mural.
The theme for this year’s UBCO Public Art Project draws inspiration from wild horses of the Okanagan. Wild horses have long been a symbol of strength and freedom for many cultures. As our fourth mural in our local flora and fauna series, this mural uses the wide panorama of the architecture to illustrate a fantastical view of our picturesque region.
UBCO’s Department of Creative Studies partnered with Stober Group for the 2023 mural course, helping to secure a highly visible wall in the growing Landmark District.
Support for this project was made possible with the generous donations from Sunbelt Rentals, Stober Group, Dulux Paints, and Fresh West Official.
