Hayden Harvey, a young Gabriola artist is the successful recipient of the contract to install a mural on the Community Hall depicting the history of Gabriola.  She has begun work and it will be installed in the Spring.

Thank you to all the talented artists who submitted proposals for this grant.  It was a difficult decision but a group of six people all agreed that Hayden fulfilled the requirements we had set out for the mural.  Celestine Aleck of the Snuneymuex First Nations is working with Hayden to ensure accuracy of the indigenous images.  

The mural will be on the south wall of the Community Hall for all to enjoy, especially at the Annual Salmon Barbeque August 12th which will celebrate Canada 150  and 100 years for the Community Hall.

Congratulations Hayden!
