Each year, we lose some good outdoor art in Winnipeg. For the year indicated, here's a last look at, a last goodbye to some of the artwork that has disappeared that year.

241 Vaughan Street   

   This rendering for European School of Aesthetics was done by Sarah Collard in 2007; with sponsorship by Broderco Management and Downtown Winnipeg BIZ. This entranceway was extremely high volume and by a bus stop, so there was much wear and tear on the Mural. The wall was repainted in 2012 and the Mural was lost.

Original notes follow:===

Sarah Collard: "The nice thing about this one is the transformation of the space. Before this, it was not a nice corner, it was dull and dirty looking, and all gray. I designed and painted something very graphic, so it can be seen from far away and from the bus stop. It's a strong design; it's very contemporary. The colours match and work not only with the frame but with the stores around it."

"I was inspired a bit by Piet Mondrian, who was an abstract impressionist. I had just been to New York and had seen some of his paintings there. He did these canvases of blocks of colour; so that's what I wanted to do here."

"I chose the blue, the red and the yellow as my colours in this simple design. I didn't plan it this way, but I think the design and colours have a British, Union Jack sort of feel to it. I'm a Canadian who likes being Canadian, but also likes the British influence of our culture. I love the design and how the figure fits into the space. To me, that female figure is exuding confidence and she's leaning forward; she's going somewhere and she means business."

"On the last day I put their business logo in and the row of nail polish bottles, to help symbolize what they do there. At first I gave her blue hair, but ended up giving her the blonde hair which I think looks great."
