Sharing Stories with the World
In 2009, to honour the traditions and history of the Salish nations, GVHA sponsored the Unity Wall Mural transformation. A project that transformed the breakwater into an enormous canvas; allowing First Nation artists to share their stories with the world and to create a public art piece that creates a bridge between cultures. In 2013, GVHA sponsored the creation of the murals third phase and the painting of related designs along the outer breakwater.
The response to the artwork has been powerful and has spurred a vision to cover both sides of the breakwater; making it the largest mural in Canada.
