Star Blanket Project – Edge Gallery

Completed: September 2016

Part of Wall to Wall Mural Festival, Winnipeg artist Kenneth Lavallee led the Star Blanket Project, which first consisted of painting star blankets on buildings in Winnipeg’s North End. Many other star blanket murals have been created throughout Winnipeg and Brandon since then. The murals honour missing and murdered Indigenous women, this dedication coming from Lavallee learning more about the 1971 murder of Helen Betty Osborne. Sponsored by Synonym Art Consultation, Graffiti Art Programming, North End Community Renewal Corporation, and Wall to Wall Mural Festival.
