Granville Island has added some murals. Its kind of surprising that they haven't had them until now, they are so many spots that could be home to murals especially in that area.

Winnipeggers may be wondering about the canoes lighting up at the junction of St. Anne’s and St. Mary’s Roads in the heart of Old St. Vital.

Local artist Collin Zipp was inspired by a visit to the St. Vital Museum across the street, where he saw a birch bark canoe and historical photos from the 1950 flood when the junction was under water and canoes were used to transport people and supplies. “What drew me to the idea of using canoes as a source material for this work was the resilience that the people of St. Vital showed. The flood should not only be remembered as a time of despair but as a time when the community came together. The area also has a diverse and rich history. The 1820 Metis settlement is a major and important part of it.” - Collin Zipp, artist

'Heaven Between' downtown Winnipeg

Title: Heaven Between
Artist: Bill Pechet
Location: On the boulevard at Broadway and Edmonton Street
Medium: Aluminum, Galvanized Steel, LED lights
Date: 2016

Quote:
The Winnipeg Arts Council has envisioned artwork for Broadway for many years while the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ has also worked for years toward creatively lighting the avenue. These two visions have come together in heaven between, the first permanent light-based sculpture for Broadway. Artist Bill Pechet notes that the dome shape of the new piece was inspired by the rooftops of significant buildings on the boulevard. Framed by the domes of the Legislative Building at one end of Broadway, and Union Station at the other, the artwork is patterned with cut out silhouettes of elm leaves. This intricate design casts light on the ground while reflecting the trees that line the street, planted over one hundred years ago by visionary city-makers.

Weird SpongeG because I haven’t been to Granville for 20 years and I just assumed that they always had great murals etc. Good to see! Also, that bottle mural is supreme! (and the parking garage)

Winnipeg general strike of 1919 monument

Quote:
The winning submission of a design competition to commemorate the Winnipeg general strike of 1919 incorporates both sides of the violent event which crippled much of the city’s services for 40 days and reverberated throughout the North American labour community, says its designer.

The winning submission was selected over 13 others by the City of Winnipeg. It is a 40-foot wide by about 25-foot high "billboard" comprised of weathered steel supported on iron columns forming the numbers 1919.

The monument is called the 1919 Marquee.

The marquee will feature 21 letters that form words relevant to the strike.

"It’s almost like a mash-up — a kind of word puzzle," says Monteyne. "It allows for interpretation."

One of the words will be Vulcan, a tribute to the Vulcan Iron and Engineering Works foundry and its workers who walked off the job during the strike. Also in three-foot square letters will be the word crucible — a monument in the form of a cross and a reference to a container used to melt iron materials, explains the architect.

Holes or perforations in the giant steel billboard will form the number 1919 "to create light effects that people will notice" as the setting sun’s rays pour through the perforations.

Monteyne says his design aims to be part of "a welcoming urban space."

The billboard will be on a small plaza surrounded by theatres and the Centennial Concert Hall in the Exchange District. It is located on the site where many of the strikers, mounted police and others engaged in violent melees during the labour protest.

The strike had a significant impact on the labour movement in Canada and even the U.S. At stake were wages and working conditions. About 30,000 workers walked off of their jobs and two people died in the Winnipeg protests.
