Mural Map of Canada

The Home Front WWII

Style: Heritage

Artist: Allan Bender

The Boys and Girls Club received a grant from the Minister of Canadian Heritage’s World War Commemoration Community Fund and commissioned Blinc Studios to paint a series of narrative murals entitled “The Home Front”.

The interior gymnasium murals were designed and painted between November 2015 and March 2016 on the west and south wall of the Club’s gym. Three area high schools collaborated with the team during a series of workshops to collect imagery on the World Wars and develop a design. The students actually took part in painting some of the murals during a workshop with Blinc Studios. The mural continues the Home Front theme illustrating several narratives of the Lindsay area during world war II.
