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.

472 Selkirk Avenue (2)   

   This piece was rendered by Kathleen Fonseca in 2006. If was painted over in 2016.

Original notes follow:

Kathleen Fonseca: "The doorway was getting dirty and messy. They had to take some of the wall boards off. It was stucco and it was messy in there. They thought that if they put up some nice boards that it would be a perfect spot that we could do a wall Mural there. Instead of having an ugly brown door that always looked dirty, it was suggested that we paint a turtle around the glass window. So that became part of the design."

"I drew up a design that allowed the eagle to be wrapped around to the side. I had to figure out how to get the wing and the head and have the turtle so that they all fit in. A wolf was also wanted, so I included that on the side (photo 2)."

"Some of the kids that come here to the art program would come and help me paint, especially some of the sky and some of the background colours. With the turtle I would draw it in and then they would help me paint it. The whole thing was freehand. I only worked in the evenings in my spare time from my other duties here. I tried to involve the youth as much as I could."
