Polar Bear Mosaic

We our still looking for 3 more artists to collaborate on the Polar Bear Mosaic! If you could pass a long the word that would be great!
The project seeks to bring together wood pieces painted by 16 emerging artists from across the province to form a diverse mosaic in the shape of a polar bear. They have the opportunity to express their identity, aesthetic of their community and wish for Canada in the next 150 years.
For further insight, I have attached an image of the incomplete wood pieces for the polar bear mosaic to this email. I have also attached images from mosaics that have been completed in other parts of the country as well.
The remaining 3 wood pieces need to be completed by August 24th. The mosaic will be unveiled at the Winnipeg Art Gallery sometime in the first week of September. This is a volunteer opportunity. The artists are not required to be present at the unveiling.
