The location is the large south side wall of the old building at 100 Burnside Rd W (on the corner at Wascana), which currently houses Cycles West. We have already met with the building owner, who is keen for this public art and will be contributing to the costs. Did you know this building was a grocer, a shoe repair shop, a hardware store, and a barber shop? There are steps down to the cycle shop from Burnside Road, and interestingly, the building was originally street level, but Burnside Road has been raised since then, making the main entrance no longer street level.
We have successfully received a 'Community Well-being and Place-making Grant' from the District of Saanich and we acknowledge the generous support of the CRD Arts Commission in the form of a grant from the Capital Regional District. We now need to just close the final gap!
We thank the donors, the business supporters, and government grantors for their support and are so excited to see this project take shape!
