Glass artwork (Danielle Hayes photo)
Twenty-five murals in Vernon tell the rich history of pioneering spirit, cattle ranchers and apple orchards, world wars and peace keeping, and First Nations and multiculturalism.
Walk the downtown streets and the stories are all around in paintings that cover the sides of buildings and run as long as a city block.
The Murals Project
Not only do the murals tell a story, but they are a story in themselves. Under the direction of lead artist Michelle Loughery, these works were completed by youth at risk as part of a government employment and life skills program. Most of the young people had no idea about art before they started, but the project changed many lives.
In a truly happy ending/great beginning story, two of the artists, Tyler Toews and Steven Skolka, have started a mural company of their own and were commissioned to complete the most recent work, Sovereign Lake.
