The McMillan Arts Centre (MAC) has received a $2,500 donation from EPCOR, through its Heart + Soul Fund, in support of the MAC’s art therapy programs.
The mural is the brainchild of 2020 Visual Art graduate Joe Lyons. It is made up of more than 300 tiles, each individually painted by students, employees and community members, woven together by Lyons to spell out VIU.
Each painting was a collaborative effort by three artists, who were assigned a third of the canvas, but did not know what their partners were painting.
The exhibit can be viewed in the lobby of the Malaspina Theatre (Building 310) October 1, 4-8 and 11-13 from 1-4 p.m. During these times, the artist will be available to talk about his work and answer questions.
