West Vancouver Bridge Festival - land connected community Art
May 31 - June 1, 2019
This beautiful mural emerged over 2 days at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver as a way to honour the land and the animals that call it home, past and present. We called each animal by their Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) name to honour the indigenous people, language, and culture of the land. This piece was gifted back to the District of West Vancouver for the community to enjoy!
