mural

This mural, by artist Bruno Smoky, is in an alley in the 200 block of Leon Avenue. It's one of more than 60 murals featured in a new online map.

 

A new online map shows the location of more than 60 murals around Kelowna.

It was created by Dianne Gray, an information specialist at CTQ Consultants, a downtown business.

She was inspired to create the map after watching university students paint a mural  in a downtown alley as part of their studies.

"These open-air public galleries add splashes of colour into aging architecture and dark alleyways, breathing new life into their surroundings," says David Doody, a UBC Okanagan instructor.

The easy-to-use online mural directory shows the location of each mural and provides some information about the artist who created it and what it represents.
