This mural is part of a MB 150 project, created to celebrate the impact that rural communities have made on the province of Manitoba.
This project was spearheaded by Arts Mosaic Inc., a regional arts organization. Arts Mosaic provides arts programming for communities in the Town of Virden, and the RMs of Pipestone, Sifton and Wallace-Woodworth.
Erica and Mary Lowe were chosen to create the murals in the communities of Elkhorn, Oak Lake and Virden. This mother-daughter mural team are local, professional artists who excel at painting realism, historical imagery and creatively playing with the beauty of nature.
The mural is a reflection of the industry, people and landscape that brought life into this community. The mural brings together the history and vibrancy of the prairies into a collage bursting with color and life.
Support for this project was provided by the Town of Virden and the Virden and Area Foundation.
