Completed August 2020, this “street art” mural was painted by local artists Matthew Borland (Bishops Falls) and Melissa Francis(Gander) for the Botwood Mural Arts Society with the support of the Town of Botwood. The mural expresses the community’s extreme gratitude to all the essential workers and businesses that continued to work and operate to ensure that the residents of Botwood and surrounding area had access to essential food and supplies, personal services, health services and emergency services during the Covid -19 Pandemic. These essential workers and businesses risked their own lives and livelihoods to ensure the safety and security of others. They are our “angels” deserving of their “halos”. This large mural was completed outside, which allowed for the required physical distancing. It brought some bright, uplifting color and joy to our community during an otherwise dark and anxious period of time.
Artists: Matthew Borland and Melissa Francis
