We are Canadian: Celebrating 150 Years of Diversity at William Roper Hull School
To celebrate the 150th birthday of our country, the students of William Roper Hull School, along with artist-in-residence Carole Bondaroff, have created an exterior painted wall mural.
The mural depicts a map of Canada, with smaller panels which are mounted atop the provinces and territories creating a bas-relief effect. The individual student paintings highlight our provincial birds and flowers. Two flanking side panels act as totems and feature additional selected Canadian icons.
The mural measures 7 by 15 feet and will be installed on the east-facing exterior wall of William Roper Hull School this spring.
Support for the project has come from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Calgary Board of Education and Hull Services, Calgary.
