Annie Bergen: "I painted this Mural on panels at the Red Road Lodge, the former Occidental Hotel. This was the first major project i had undertaken out of our artspace (Spin Star Studio) at the hotel, so it's especially significant to me. The Mural depicts a bright collage of the school's diverse children, the building's heritage architecture, and a general history of the school itself. Using subject, style and color, I wanted to create a scene of celebration and spirit. At the time, I had just begun working as an E.A at J.B Mitchell School in River Heights, and the vibrant energy and beauty of the children definitely helped to inspire this scene that I painted for Luxton's Centennial."
