Express your connection to Burnaby's landscape in community art project

Colourful magnetic patterns will be incorporated into a design to adorn a construction fence as the new Burnaby Lake Aquatic Facility is built.
Participate in a community art project hosted by the City of Burnaby at various rec centres throughout November.

As Burnaby prepares to build the new Burnaby Lake Aquatic and Area Facility (complete with an NHL-sized arena), the city wants your help to create art for a temporary mural.

The city is hosting several community art sessions at recreation centres across the city.

You can create patterns with colourful magnets “that express your connection to the local landscape of Burnaby Lake.”

Local artist Mary-Ann Liu will assemble the community-created patterns into a temporary mural depicting B.C. wildflowers which will decorate the project’s construction fence.

For more information, see the city’s website.
