THE GREAT MU­RAL DE­BATE

Winnipeg Free Press - Section D - - FRONT PAGE -

A mu­ral was painted on the out­side of the WECC in 1990 by artist Larry Spit­tle fea­tur­ing a colour­ful crew of fig­ures play­ing mu­si­cal in­stru­ments. It be­came part of the vis­ual iconog­ra­phy of the neigh­bour­hood. The de­ci­sion to re­place it with a new art in­stal­la­tion after the renovation was, to quote then-artis­tic di­rec­tor Mike Falk, “a bit of a to-do.”
