High School Students Invited to Participate in Creating Art for the Grant-Harvey Centre
Fredericton (May 6, 2010)

The City of Fredericton is once again recruiting high school students interested in helping to create a series of murals to be displayed prominently in the lobby of the Grant-Harvey Centre, the municipality’s new sports and leisure complex currently under construction on Knowledge Park Drive.

A group of students working on the first four of eight panels has almost completed their colourful works of art depicting athletic activities and organizers are now seeking a new group of students to create the final four.

The theme of the art works is tied into the City’s in motion campaign, which is designed to keep people active, and the panels will show people in a variety of athletic pursuits. A core group of six students has been working on the murals every Saturday since early January. The finished size of each of the panels is 4x4 feet.

The project is a great opportunity for students to work with a professional artist, learn art and design techniques, and to be part of creating something which will be ‘hanging around’ in an exciting new sports facility for years to come.
