Canada 150 Mural
In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, the students at Simon Fraser School decided to create a mural capturing many of the iconic images and events that have shaped Canada into the country that it is today. Simon Fraser's very own student artists strategically painted the 8’ x 8’ mural in the attempt to capture a cohesive image of Canada's people, landscapes and events with vibrant colors and powerful stories. Students chose to include a section dedicated to the not so glorious parts of our history by dedicating a section to Residential Schools. "We wanted this mural to be an accurate representation of Canadian history and society, not just the stereotypical symbols we always see. We [Canadians] are more than that" - Simon Fraser Grade 7 Artist.
