Earth Day Community MuralVisitors to the Montrose Cultural Centre and participants attending the Earth Day celebrations are invited to draw or write their Earth Day commitments using window markers. Make your mark and add to the visual dialogue we are having with each other!
 
The Earth Day Mural is a community art installation facilitated by the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie. It is a group project that invites all visitors to contribute a small piece to the larger mural using the provided Window Markers. A collaborative artwork like this allows everyone to participate and for visitors to view it change and grow over time.
