Community Art Mosaic Project

Join Mayor Sandy Brown and Councillor Lisa Post on Monday, October 25 at 11 a.m. for a virtual unveiling of the Town of Orangeville’s Community Art Mosaic. The event will be streamed live on the Town’s Facebook page.

Between June 28 and July 9, 500 Orangeville residents of all ages demonstrated their artistic talents by hand painting 4x4-inch tiles. Each mini artwork, when combined together, created an 8x12-foot mural that represents the historic charm of Orangeville and celebrates the unity of our community. The community art mosaic is on display outside the Council Chamber in Town Hall for the entire community to enjoy.

“Art has the power to bring people together,” said Mayor Sandy Brown. “The Orangeville mural is a lasting legacy of our community’s resilience during these challenging times and is a clear illustration that we are stronger together. Thank you to all the talented artists who participated in this creative venture.”

Launched as part of this year’s Canada Day celebration, the community art mosaic allowed Orangeville residents to connect safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Individuals and participating artists will be able to visit Town Hall, during regular business hours, to view the mural starting on Tuesday, October 26.

The Town commissioned Mural Mosaic, an Edmonton-based arts group, to design the mural and incorporate the individual paintings into a unique work of art. Completion of the project was supported by a $11,200 grant from Canada Heritage through the Celebrate Canada Fund.
