Throught the Eye of the Raven at Urban Aboriginal Gallery for the 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Friday Oct 29, 2010

THROUGH THE EYE OF THE RAVEN
Friday October 29, 2pm-4pm
Urban Aboriginal Gallery, 456 E. Hastings

Meet the team of artists who created, designed and painted the extraordinary Through the Eye of the Raven, Western Canada’s largest mural recently completed on the west wall of the newly-renovated Orwell Hotel. Hear their ‘mural stories’ in the informal setting of the new Urban Aboriginal Gallery, followed by a 3pm slideshow presentation featuring the community and artistic process of this landmark project. Mural co-artistic directors were Richard Tetrault and Jerry Whitehead, and participating artists included: Richard Shorty, Northern Tutchone; Sharifah Marsden, Anishnabe; Haisla Collins, Tsimshian; Eric Parnell, Haida; and the poet Nicola Campbell, Interior Salish of Nle7kepmx (Thomson) and Nsilz (Okanagan). All artists are residents of Vancouver’s Eastside. The mural is a Vancouver Native Housing Society project created with support from the City of Vancouver, BC Housing, Britiannia Community Centre, Strathcona BIA, General Paint, the Royal Bank, VanMar Constructors and others. The best views of the mural are either from across the street in the Patricia Hotel parking lot, or looking east from Gore up the alley between Hastings and Pender.
