A colourful creation coming to life in downtown Vernon is paying omage to the Syilx First Nation.
Welbec Properties has commissioned a 220-foot-wide mural covering the north wall of the Service Canada building on 30th Avenue.
The initial plan was for the mural to include a fox, but following a suggestion from Vernon Council, it now features a coyote.
“The new mural on the north side of the Service Canada building is looking terrific, and we love the image of the coyote or Senk’lip in the Syilx culture,” the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce said.
The Welbec-owned building is the old Bargain Shop which backs onto the former Vernon Legion site which is empty.
Mural artists are Lacey Jane Wilburn and Layla Folkmann.
