West End On-street Mural project got approved by Viva Vancouver in early April. A month later, we had selected the location (Cardero between Nelson and Comox Streets) and held the first get together to meet and greet the community and introduce the project.

A series of meetings was held in June to discuss the role of the mural and to determine 3 priority concepts that capture our neighborhood. In August, Sonja will present artistic interpretations of the 3 concepts developed by the community and, while munching on cookies and juice, the group will choose a design that best represents their sentiments for their neighbourhood.

We had a great celebration and the work party on September 23, 2012! Click here to see photos from the mural party.
