Artist Selected – Celebrating Volunteers and Canada’s 150th
The Volunteer Centre of Guelph/Wellington is grateful for project support from The Guelph Community Foundation and Ontario150 as well as expertise from the Guelph Arts Council, and is thrilled to announce Meredith Blackmore is the selected artist for the ‘Celebrating 150 Years of Volunteerism – Mural Project’.
“Capturing the talent of a Canadian artist to create a mural celebrating volunteerism will act as a lasting legacy in our community” says Christine Oldfield, Volunteer Centre Executive Director. “It’s really a tapestry of connections: from showcasing Canadian talent through the arts, to highlighting the strength of volunteer engagement, to the creation of a mounted large-scale reproduction of the completed artwork, the project expresses and honours Guelph and Wellington County’s history of exceptional dedication to civic engagement and volunteerism.”
