Community Art Mosaic

To celebrate Canada Day, the Town of Orangeville is inviting Orangeville residents to participate in the creation of a legacy art project. The Town has commissioned Mural Mosaic, an Edmonton-based arts group, to design a mosaic mural showcasing the historic charm of Orangeville.

The mural will be made up of approximately 500 tiles – each a unique hand-painted image – that when combined together create an overall design. The 8-foot by 12-foot ft. mural will be installed at Town Hall upon completion.

“Due to COVID-19 restrictions, residents will not be able to gather to celebrate Canada Day again this year,” said Mayor Sandy Brown. “To connect as a community, we are launching Orangeville’s largest community art project to unite us as one, while keeping everyone safe through social distancing. I encourage Orangeville residents to get creative and have some fun over the holiday by painting a mosaic tile. It will be exciting to see the individual tiles come together to form an iconic image.”

Between June 28 and July 9, individuals, families and community groups can sign up online to get a free art kit for the mural mosaic project. The art kit contains one mosaic tile, paint supplies and instructions. Registration opens on Monday, June 28. Families can complete one registration form for the entire household. There is a limit of one tile per resident.

Once registered, individuals will pick up and drop off a tile through the Mill Street library’s curbside pick-up service. Curbside pick-up is available Monday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Completed tiles should be dropped off to the library by Saturday, July 10 at 5 p.m.

Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun. No art experience is needed. Orangeville residents are encouraged to have their design fit the character of Orangeville – nature, local history, local attractions, and celebration of the arts.
