Pineroot Mural Festival
Now in it's second year, the Pineroot Mural Festival is named after the Pineroot River, a 3km waterway running from Mikanagan Lake to Lake Athapapuskow. The river first served as a traditional route for Cree hunters and later marked one of the first attempts at mining in the region. The area is surrounded by rock cliffs, muskeg, and boreal forest and is home to an abundance of Northern wildlife. The festival is named after this waterway as we explore the connection between arts and the environment and honour the history of our region.
In our first season (summer 2020) we completed one mural located on the Perimeter highway. A second mural was started on panels, then delayed due to Code Red, but is currently being completed and will be mounted in early summer 2021!
For our summer 2021 season we are proud to be partnering with the Flin Flon Public Library and will be completing a large scale mural on the side of their building. We are currently looking for artist submissions for this mural. This is open to ALL artists and you can apply with a just a design, as a working artist, or both! Please take a look at the documents below, and don't hesitate to send us an e-mail with any questions you may have.
A huge shout out to our three artists!
to our sponsors from our 2020 season!
