Burlington Spotlight: Canada 150 Mosaic Mural Project

The Canada 150 Mosaic mural is coming to Canada’s Best Mid-Sized City. All across Canada, beautiful, community created, murals are popping up in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. And soon, residents of Burlington will have the opportunity to come together to create the pieces of their mural.

The Burlington Mosaic will be made up of 400 tiles, all hand-painted by members of the community. You can visit either of the two upcoming community painting days to participate and paint your tile, becoming part of this very exciting project that Burlington will be proud of for years to come. The organizers are clear that expertise and experience are not a requirement, and that everyone is invited to participate and showcase their pride for their city and country.

Burlington Painting Days and Locations

Date: Sunday, May 21st
Location: Burlington Mall (777 Guelph Line)
Time: 2pm to 6pm

Date: Monday, May 22nd
Location: Art Gallery of Burlington (1333 Lakeshore Rd.)
Time: 1pm to 4pm

Note: Because there are only 400 tiles in the mural, availability and participation will be first come, first served.

Once the tiles have been painted, the Canada 150 Mosaic team will take over, putting together the Burlington mural. The finished mural will be unveiled on Canada Day, July 1st, 2017 at the Burlington Music Centre.

We are proud to be part of the Burlington Community and very proud that Burlington will be able to count itself as one of the 150 cities that are celebrating Canada’s sesquicentennial with a gorgeous, community created, mural!

As Canadians, this is a special and exciting event. As residents of Burlington, it is extra special.

We hope that you will be painting a tile and becoming part of a showpiece that people will enjoy for years to come. And we hope that you’ll be there on Canada Day for the reveal and celebration!
