Here’s what will be happening in Port Coquitlam:

Canada 150 Mural Unveiling
When: Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 12:15pm to 12:45pm
Where: The Outlet at Leigh Square

Join in the unveiling of Port Coquitlam’s Canada 150 legacy project: An 8×12-foot mural consisting of 600 tiles hand-painted by local residents at this summer’s Canada Day and Canada 150 events.

Permanently installed at the Outlet, the mural is part of the national Canada 150 Mural Mosaic public art project, which aims to create murals in 150 Canadian communities, and was made possible in part by the Government of Canada. All murals in the project have an overarching railway motif as well as local themes.

Entitled Our Journeys, Port Coquitlam’s mural features images that pay tribute to hometown hero Terry Fox, the Kwikwetlem First Nation, the area’s natural heritage and the trails enjoyed by many residents.
