Mission residents can help create a work of art

Drop by the Mission Library and add a paint chip to mosaic project

Mission residents have the opportunity to become a part of a community art project.

Dean and Christina Lauze of D’Arts were contacted by the Mission Community Archives to come up with an art project involving the direct participation of citizens in its creation for the 2019 B.C. Culture Days provincial launch. It got started at the event and now more people are required to finish it.

Using an iconic image of the Mission Bridge with artistic enhancements, the Lauzes designed a pixel art mosaic composed of 4,125 paint chips.

Once completed, the mosaic art will be covered with a clear resin and displayed in a public space representing the first large-scale collective public art work in Mission.

From Oct. 28 to Nov. 3, the Mission Library will have the art mosaic on display hosted and staffed by a different local group every day. The public is being asked to assist with the mosaic’s completion by placing paint chips on the art piece.

Here are your opportunities to partake at the library:

  • Oct. 28, 2-6 p.m. (hosted by Mission Literacy in Motion);
  • Oct. 29, 2-6 p.m. (hosted by BC Culture Days Provincial Launch Task Group and the Cultural Resources Commission);
  • Oct. 30, 2-6 p.m. (hosted by Welton Towers and Pleasant View Housing Society as well as the Mission Association for Seniors Housing);
  • Oct. 31, 2-6 p.m. (hosted by Mission Community Archives);
  • Nov. 1, 1-5 p.m. (hosted by Rivendell, Second Stage Housing and Mission Community Services);
  • Nov. 2, 1-5 p.m. (hosted by District of Mission Firefighters); and
  • Nov. 3, 1-5 p.m. (hosted by Mission Communities in Bloom).

If you have any questions or require more information, please contact Val Billesberger at the Mission Community Archives or call 604-837-7569.
