Massive Langley City mural made with hundreds of tiny works of art

Tiles painted by community members were assembled into a large mural for Canada 150.

Charon Graham was one of hundreds of people who painted four-inch by four-inch tiles in early May, as part of a Canada 150 public art project.

She used hers to show her admiration for Queen Elizabeth “because I love the queen,” she said.

Now the blue tile has become part of a mosaic that uses all the tiles created for the special project. It’s one large piece of art created by hundreds of smaller pieces of art and was officially unveiled on Tuesday, May 23.

Langley City is one of 150 communities to take part in the Canada 150 mosaic mural project.
