Something artistic is afoot in downtown Victoria. As a part of United Way Greater Victoria’s Youth in Action initiative, and in partnership with the City of Victoria, six local artists and 18 youth have been busy at work creating eye-catching, eclectic, and vibrant murals to beautify our city.
The goal of this project is to engage and inspire youth to use their artistic talent to improve the appearance of their neighborhoods while encouraging others to take pride in their community. The project has been engaging the young artists and their mentors since late 2015, and blank walls and fences around town are being transformed into creative, urban canvases. At this time, three out of the six murals have been completed and the 4th is underway. Stay tuned for more exciting information.
Locations of the completed murals are:
838 Fisgard Street
930-32 Pandora Street
1211 Gladstone Avenue
