Message from the Chairman

"The success of the Botwood Mural Arts project will be determined by the support given by the community as a whole. Our committee is being encouraged constantly by the positive feedback received from every sector. If this is a measure of what is to come, Botwood is well on its way to an exciting future. Some communities are blessed with a view. Some are blessed with a vision. Botwood has both. We are proud to be working on your behalf."

Mike Shainline,
Chairman, Botwood Mural Arts Society

A: Preference will be given to Newfoundland and Labrador artists whose livelihood is derived solely from art.

Q: How can I get involved?
A: Volunteers are always needed and welcomed. Contact any committee member or inquire at the Botwood Town Office.


Financing

Investment in the Mural Arts Project comes from a broad range of sources, including:

It is through a partnership with local, regional, national and international participants that we will witness the growth of this economic enterprise.


History

The first project began as a legacy project for "Come Home Year 2010" with an idea of doing a mural depicting the old Cottage Hospital. The idea quickly expanded to developing a series of murals celebrating the community's diverse history.
