Grow with the Flow selected for public art
The Fernie & District Arts Council has been awarded a grant by the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance to add to the public art inventory of Fernie. This is an Arts & Cultural grant program by the Columbia Basin Trust.
The arts council this past week announced that Tara Higgins and Becca Davies will create the 2022 mural called Grow with the Flow – a celebration of Fernie. A town nestled in the Rockies filled with people always on the move and who love to come together over music. Bold graphics and a strong use of heritage colours combine together to fill the space with energy and joy.
The artwork will be located on the back wall of 602-2nd Avenue. The back wall is located in an alleyway opposite The Arts Station and serves as backdrop to an area known as Station Square. Station Square is in the core of downtown Fernie and used for community events such as the Wednesday Socials and Griz Days.
