Local artist Liam Renner has been chosen to complete this year’s mural. Liam describes his design as “positive with warm summer vibes and a beautiful colour scheme, with the goal of creating energy all year round.”

The proposed mural would be installed during the months of August and September. The mural will be covered in an anti-graffiti coating to preserve the art. During installation of the mural, the artist will host a free workshop open to all residents. Details about the workshop will be posted online at rmwb.ca/mural.

There will be no road closures or disruption of Rainbow Creek Drive or Heritage Drive.

Share feedback and learn more about the Public Art Mural Program on Monday, July 23 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Parsons Creek Bridge.
