Wood Buffalo Mosaic Project a resounding success thanks to community
The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) extends its thanks to all the community members who participated in the Wood Buffalo Mosaic Project celebrating Alberta Culture Days.
The Wood Buffalo Mosaic Project surpassed the original goal of capturing 2,000 photographic images of members of the Wood Buffalo community. In total, photojournalist Tim Van Horn captured 2,180 images, making the Wood Buffalo Mosaic Project a resounding success.
“We want to extend our sincere thanks to all the community members in Fort McMurray and Anzac who participated in this exciting mosaic project,” said Russell Agnew, Interim Chief Operating Officer of the RRC. “While this project was centred around the recent celebration of Alberta Culture Days it was truly an opportunity to be part of Wood Buffalo history, as the finished mosaics, made entirely of images of the residents of our region, will be installed at Shell Place and the Anzac Recreation Centre presented by Nexen Energy, a CNOOC Limited company.”
Community members wishing to view their photographs from the Wood Buffalo Mosaic Project can visit canadianmosaic.ca after October 13 to see their images.
