Abbotsford's Canada 150 Mural Mosiac
Abbotsford was the first municipality in BC to join the Canada 150 Mural Mosaic project; a national mural including over 80,000 paintings and 150 individual murals from all provinces and territories. All the artwork joined together forms one massive virtual mural mosaic and if ever connected, the murals would be over 365 metres wide (4 football fields) x 2.5 metres high (8 feet).
Abbotsford residents painted approximately 400 of the mosaic tiles at various events from May to July 2016, to represent Abbotsford and it’s cultural heritage. The mural is now displayed in the Atrium of the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium to preserve Abbotsford’s legacy and commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday.
