Description

This mural features designs based on public input, such as eagles, salmon, and a unicorn, representing the Brackendale Art Gallery, painted in bright primary colours and with a geometric design. As a part of the Squamish Wind Festival for the Arts in 2020, OurSquamish volunteers painted Brackendale’s first road mural on Eagle Run Drive.

Artist Statement

Road murals act as more than public art, they can also enable traffic-calming and create a sense of “place” in the community. Situated next to several local businesses, and busy Government Road, the mural is visible for many members of the community.”

OurSquamish is a community non-profit dedicated to enhancing Squamish’s urban public spaces for a lively, inclusive, sustainable, safe & healthy Squamish. Through people-driven projects, education, and advocacy, OurSquamish is committed to building equitable public spaces that support the diversity of our community.

Constance grew up on a mixed farm on Vancouver Island and has been adventuring in Squamish since 2010. In 2018 she settled in Squamish where she spends as much time as possible in the forests or gardens. She works with Squamish CAN specializing in sustainable food systems and supporting people in growing their own food. She loves nature but realizes that humans need a place to live too. Therefore she sees sustainable dense urban towns and cities (with lots of urban agriculture and green space) as a way to preserve nature as opposed to suburban sprawl.
