"We are excited to announce that participants will have the opportunity for a studio visit with world-renowned Coast Salish artist Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun.
Join us on Facebook to be part of the discussion and receive updates about the progress of the mural
As a reminder, The Native Education College (NEC) and grunt gallery are partnering with three Vancouver-based First Nations artists: Corey Bulpitt, Sharifah Marsden and Jerry Whitehead to create a mural that celebrates NEC’s 30th Anniversary at their location in Mount Pleasant.
We’d like to invite YOU to participate! Especially if you are a youth (age 15-18), NEC student, or anyone interested in learning about contemporary Indigenous art practices, Indigenous-led education, the history of Mount Pleasant, and working together to plan and paint a large-scale mural.
The mural will be created on the east wall of the Tsimilano Building, an administrative building located next door to the Longhouse on East 5th Avenue at Main Street, a busy urban area in East Vancouver.
We will meet on a monthly basis to plan the mural. Painting will take place in April 2016 followed by a big launch party!”
