Wall Murals: Lloydminster Ab/Sk
The story of Louis Lavoie's wall mural earns a coveted entry into the Fredericks Bucket List on the right side of the blog.
The mural we see above was created by Saskatchewan artist, Louis Lavoies. Its called Buffalo Twins and it was painted on the theme of unity and diversity, as part of the cooperative centennial project celebrated by the twin provincial city of Lloydminster. The mural mosaaic is a composite of the works of over 300 contributing artists who contributed small equal sized prairie scenes, without knowing what the end result would be when they were all assembled.
