The Labyrinth of Lifelong Learning

Completed: 2003

The labyrinth in this mural was initially designed by Anne Nesbitt, a labyrinth instructor at Creative Retirement Manitoba. The creation of this piece was a collaborative and matriarchal one too, where women from all over the community came together to create it. These were women of various ages, and backgrounds. Each person’s own style came through in a different way in the painting, yet it remained as one image. The labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey of life, and many spectators of the mural have said it brings them peace and relaxation.
