Title Inuvik mural.

To kick off the Sacred Brush mural project, the youth headed to Inuvik to paint a long-awaited mural on the walls of the Kiosk located in the Jim Koe Park, right in the central part of the town. The design included an ”inukshuk”, a beautiful winter scene with the silhouettes of spruce trees along with caribou, a beluga whale and some hunters. One of the very cool features of this mural is the butterfly wings painted largely on the wall, allowing the mural to have interaction with the community — in a way that is modern and beautiful! It was a lovely experience with some younger kids, with unmatched enthusiasm, who helped with the mural. Watching them learn and get into a creative outlet was fantastic.
