VERNON MUSEUM CANADA 150 BUOYS
The project idea is to have rescued buoys, that the amazing non profit Ocean Legacy Foundation has reclaimed from the global beaches, shared and painted by youth, elders, artists and other community members. Each installation will create unique storytelling exchanges, of where we come from and celebrate Canadian diversity.
“Art and heritage inspires and engages in artistic storytelling and conversation,” said Loughery. “The Canada 150 – Diversity Mural Beads’ Route BlueTM Highway Buoy program will celebrate and connect our multicultural strengths. As buoys have origin stories, so do our First Peoples and new Canadians. Collectively, their stories are connected and interwoven in the roots and routes of this great nation of Canada.”
