August 8th, 4pm – 7pm (FREE)
1101 2 St NW, Crescent Heights Community Hall
Last winter, 33 friends and neighbours of Crescent Heights created the Wilder! community mural – together but in distance. Now, we can finally meet in person and celebrate! Bring your family and friends, listen to some live music, and learn more about Alberta’s nature through stories and games. Our guest speaker, Blackfoot Elder Sheldon First Rider, will be sharing some of his fascinating stories. A live band, Brother Ray Lemelin & the Matinee Kings will also be performing. Come experience Alberta’s uniqueness through the Wilder! community mural!
About the project:
The Wilder Mural was created in December of 2020, in collaboration with 33 friends and neighbors of Crescent Heights. Every participant received a tile with outlines, some info about their animal or plant, and paint so they could participate in a COVID-safe fashion from home. The community mural showcases Alberta’s wildlife and highlights endangered species. The mural shows a total of 15 endangered creatures and plants, and one mountain goat, grasshopper, ladybug, an unknown bird, dog, man with big hands and lots of prairie grass.
