I'm linking up at Monday Mural
Amaze Me Monday
This mural is a work in progress. First set of photos were taken in October 2017, June 2018 and then in August 2018.
Tannis Nielsen was chosen to create artwork in the underpass for Lower Simcoe Street between Station Street and Bremner Boulevard.
Nielsen, who is of of Métis, Anishnaabe and Danish ancestry, is a lecturer at OCAD University in the Painting and Drawing program. She has 20 years of professional experience in the arts, cultural and community sectors and nine years of teaching practice at the post-secondary level.
The goal of this project is to beautify and animate the underpass with a mural that celebrates the voices, creativity and continued impacts of Indigenous Peoples and is representative of the local, historical Indigenous perspective. Nielsen's artwork will transform the underpass into a celebrated community feature.
