Rocky the Rock Snake

Community Mural Project

***Deadline extended to Sept. 30, 2021***


Residents are Invited to Participate in Community Mural Project

In partnership with Events for Life (EFL), the Town of The Blue Mountains would like to invite all residents and community members to participate in the Community Mural project. Through collaboration with the Mural Mosaic group, the Community Mural project aims to bring the community together and celebrate the resiliency of The Blue Mountains through challenging times.
Once your participation is confirmed, you can select either a blue or green tile to paint. On any small square canvass, cardstock or paper, create your own unique design using blue or green paint. Once your artwork is complete, you will be asked to submit a photo of your creation digitally, with your final artistic design being combined by the Mural Mosaic group to create the final mural.

“Events for Life is so grateful to be partnering with the Town of The Blue Mountains on this exciting collaborative community project,” says Barb Weeden, Executive Director of Events for Life. “The Mural will represent the courage, strength, and resilience the Events for Life participants had to weather the pandemic. Our roots are planted in this community, and together we will stand strong.”

The finished mural will be 8 feet wide by 8 feet tall and will feature the artwork of approximately 400 members of the community. Tiles will be available through the website until the submission deadline of Friday August 6, 2021.

The final Community Mural will be revealed in mid-August and will be displayed in a Town facility.

EFL has joined the Meaford/Thornbury Rock Snake Challenge.   Summer staff Abby Sewell recruited family to help place 115 rocks that the EFL participants painted during the month of July.  From Montgomery to Bruce St.  Help Rocky grow to 8 miles!
