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.

Fort Gibraltar Trail underpass (1)   

'Mother Bison'
This 2017 rendering was by Nero Eugenio (Nereo II) and John Nievas Padua for Synonym Art Consultation and Graffiti Arts Programming for the 2017 Wall-to-Wall Festival. In 2019 it was replaced with a new Mural- the logic being that since underpass walls are very susceptible to crumbling, grime and water damage future underpass Murals they produce would have a lifespan of three years and then replaced, thus becoming a revolving gallery and opportunity for other artists.
Original notes follow===
Nereo Eugeneo: "I took inspiration from the Manitoba Flag, taking into account the Forks and the concept of two rivers meeting, I found the symbolism in the red cross to relative. With this version of the Manitoba Flag however, I wanted to break away from the cross and bring focus away from the old bison and onto the young with a splash of colour. To me this piece is about moving forward, about surrendering, and accepting that evolution happens through guidance that is a two-way street. At some point the teacher has to recognize that they are always a student, and that a mother or father at some point become the student to their own herd, their own calves, their own cubs, their own children. This piece is about acknowledging our history with respect as we move forward into the future."
