Accomplishment of the On-bridge Mural "ECHOES" and Subtext Festival

Our final weeks have been very rewarding. After working entirely on silhouetted background images in a dark gray colour, we finally brought in some bright orange-red colour for accents and our stencils. People who pass by us every day have been requesting some colour and, boy, do we have colour now! We have picked a variety of poems from the community and quotes to add to the imagery, so there is an almost endless display of things to see and read as you walk along the bridge now.

This is our first stencil on the bridge!

The length of the bridge was finished just in the nick of time this Friday, and was appreciated by the many who came to the Subtext Multi-Arts festival under the bridge this past weekend. It is so encouraging to be a part of the many arts projects taking place in such a diverse and talented community and know our work will be cherished for many years to come.

Although we are all proud to be completed such a huge task, we will miss our long days working together with the team and volunteers, and getting to know the people who pass by the bridge every day.

Thank you to all the kind words and support, and if you haven’t seen the final product, come on by!
