A mural by youth at the skatepark
The Pointe-Claire skatepark now features a work of art: Freestyle Lumina, a collective mural designed and created by community youth as part of the City’s cultural mediation program.
“We are privileged to have had such dedicated and creative youth involved in this project. I would like to congratulate the Youth Advisory Board for this initiative, which has made our skatepark even more vibrant,” Mayor John Belvedere said.
Over a period of four weeks, twelve young people aged 13 to 20 explored the theme of light, inspired by this summer’s signature exhibition at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery, LUMINA, to create their very own mural. Four art mediation workshops supervised by professional muralists from the organization MU introduced participants to mural techniques and helped them develop an artistic design that they then brought to life.
The artwork evokes the trajectory of light, resulting in a finished product that resembles the skatepark infrastructure, creating a parallel between action and motion.
The skatepark is located at 94 Douglas-Shand Avenue.
