Streets Alive Mosaic
The Street Alive Mosaic Fundraiser is a unique initiative for raising awareness and financial support for The Streets Alive Mission as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic where traditional in-person fundraisers have been temporarily rescinded.
Over the span of 3-months, Streets Alive Mosaic will allow the Lethbridge community to virtually-purchase the tiles that individually make up the larger image of the art piece. Donors are encouraged to upload an image to be printed on the tile that are in relation to the overarching theme of the mural– Human Connection. These photos would presume to be sentimental in value such as pictures of family and friends.
The Mosaic Mural
Creating a Mural Mosaic is a process invented by Canadian artist Lewis Lavoie that takes individual paintings and places them in a specific order to create a large painting.
At the conclusion of the project’s fundraiser, Lewis Lavoie— part of Mural Mosaic Inc. —will combine and print the donor photos onto each individual tile. These tiles will then be arranged in a specific order to create the larger mosaic image.
” Public art creates a district and vibrant legacy for the residents of Lethbridge. “
– The City of Lethbridge
In addition to raising funds for The Streets Alive Mission, the fundraiser will contribute a beautiful outdoor art piece that will be available for all community members to see in the downtown core of The City of Lethbridge. The beauty of the mural itself once complete, will demonstrate— through a collection of sentimental images —a common bond between community members from all different walks of life.
