Walker Theatre Mural

Completed: 1972

Located on the back of the former Walker Theatre, now the Burton Cummings Theatre, this mural is one of Winnipeg’s oldest murals that still stands today. Part of a public project known as Artwalls, Benson and Hendges Tobacco Company sponsored the project to “enhance the urban environment.” Winston Leathers’ mural was chosen as one of the three finalists, including artists Bill Lobchuk and Bruce Head. It was created around the same time as his Cosmic Variations series in the early 1970s.
