Vegreville to be Represented in the Canada Connects Mosaic Mural

Residents of Vegreville are being encouraged to demonstrate their love of local outdoor public art for a chance to represent the community in a piece of art that will feature the work of Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

Mural Mosaic, the same organization that came to Vegreville in 2016 to create the mural displayed on ATB Financial along 50th Avenue, is now venturing to complete a one-of-kind mosaic which will be comprised of individually painted tiles submitted from around the country.

The Town of Vegreville has secured thirty of those tiles which will now be given away through a photo contest meant to encourage residents to digitally show their appreciation of local art.

“We’re asking residents to take a selfie with their favourite public art piece in Vegreville and post the photo to social media using the hashtag ‘Explore Vegreville’. Each photo posted will be entered into a draw to win one of the thirty tiles,” Anya Langkow, Tourism, Recreation & Culture Coordinator, Town of Vegreville said. “Needless to say, we’re incredibly excited about the potential of having Vegreville represented on what’s sure to be a renowned piece of  art while showcasing our community’s amazing selection of local art in the process.”

Residents will have until June 27 to post their local art selfies using either Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
