CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Art projects created by youth at the Charlottetown Boys and Girls Club will be exhibited in airports and on digital billboards across the country.

The national art project is called “150 Reasons We Love Canada,” part of Canada 150 celebration and created by Vibe Arts, a Toronto-based charitable organization that engages underserved youth with free arts education programs.

The local youth will work with Charlottetown’s This Town is Small project, with lead artist Ashley Anne Clark helping them create the murals.

In partnership with 30 community organizations, including libraries, homeless shelters, schools and youth agencies, the project will engage youth in every province and territory to create large hand-painted murals that express the many reasons they love Canada.  

Charlottetown youth will focus on the many attributes of P.E.I. Other communities will focus on themes such as freedom, the Trans-Canada Highway and Canadian heroes.

 

Where the exhibits will be located

• Subway station platforms in Toronto

• Digital copies of the 60 murals will be displayed in high-traffic areas across the country, including on more than 300 Pattison outdoor digital billboards and airports across Canada. 

• Airports: Local airports, including the Charlottetown airport, will create an exhibit featuring the artwork. Other airports will include Pearson International, Toronto Island, Calgary, Saint John, Fredericton, Moncton, Yellowknife, Nunavut, Windsor and Sault-Ste-Marie.
