Posted Date: 12/29/2017

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Montrose Cultural Centre this morning, Friday, Dec 29, for the unveiling of the commemorative art installation.mosaic2

The painting Subarctic Bear by Canadian artist Robbie Craig was selected for the project for its connection to the Canada 150 theme of Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples The project also ties into the theme of Diversity and Inclusion as community photos are incorporated into the background of the piece.

Speedpro Signs Grande Prairie created the installation by combining images taken at Canada 150 events into a mosaic and re-creating the Subarctic Bear portion of the painting into a unique 3D version.

The installation is made possible through a matching grant from the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta and the City of Grande Prairie. 

This permanent installation is located in the Montrose Cultural Centre (9839 103 Ave.) by the Teresa Sargent Hall south entrance.
