Community mural to adorn Fisgard Street

Pacifica Housing to creat art work to beautify the neighbourhood

A downtown Victoria shelter is inviting the community to help paint a 900 sq. ft. mural to beautify the neighbourhood.

Pacifica Housing, at 827 Fisgard St., will hold a “$2 for 10” event throughout the day on Aug. 29, where aspiring artists will be given 10 minutes to contribute to the mural by donating $2.

“This is definitely a community project and we hope folks will drop by to watch and possibly participate as the mural progresses.” said Karyn French, executive director of Pacifica Housing.

Local businesses Home Depot, Garside Signs and Industrial Coatings are donating material, services and their time to the project as well.

The City of Victoria and Capital Regional District have also contributed to the project through their arts grant programs.

The completed mural will be unveiled sometime this fall.
