Blueberry Mama

Completed: August 6 2022

This mural was created for the Up Here Festival in Sudbury, Ontario for a painted Power Box project. It is currently located at the bottom of the main steps into Bell Park, with the old painted hospital to your left. The artwork was created to commemorate my childhood memories of picking wild blueberries in my backyard in Sudbury. I’ve been away from my hometown for most of my life but coming back to create a piece of public art felt full circle and a source of pride. Miigwetch and thanks to the organizers of Up Here and the partnership of Greater Sudbury Utilities for the Power Up project.
