A magical morale boost for the entire West Broadway Neighbourhood! This unique Mural was produced in partnership with Urban Shaman Contemporary Aboriginal Art, thorugh a mentorship program with artist Jackie Traverse and two teenage mentees, Leah-Marie and Jenna. Jackie has previously led a very successful mixed media painting workshop at Art City based on the Seven Sacred Teachings.

Jackie, Leah and Jenna produced a sketch for this Medicine Wheel Mural. The concept was a Mural full of aboriginal imagery, including a giant medicine wheel made out of grandfather stories and the animals from the Seven Sacred Teachings. More than 100 community members participated in the Art City workshops, painting more than 100 individual panels to create this Mural.
