For Immediate Release
Langley City, BC – Another wall once bare is now home to a work of art that showcases the rich history of the British Columbia Interurban Railway that ran down what is now Michaud Crescent through Langley Prairie, now known as Langley City, while reflecting the anticipated change of the Skytrain.
The Langley City Arts and Cultural Task Group released a Call to Artists earlier this year for a painted a wraparound mural outside of the Linwood Park outdoor washrooms, immediately behind Stepping Stone Community Services Society at 20101 Michaud Crescent. After reviewing many submissions, the City of Langley is proud to release a new mural at Linwood Park in partnership with local artist Judy Pohl of Judy's Custom Art Services. Her submission met all the requirements outlined in the Langley City Mural Call to Artists. Langley City Council approved the project's funding on December 16, 2019, Regular Council Meeting, which included a cost of up to two thousand dollars for supplies and a thousand-dollar honorarium from the Public Art Fund.
"Judy has completed many murals, lettering, and window paintings across Langley City, and we are happy to have her artwork included in Linwood Park," said Langley City Arts and Cultural Task Group, Chair Paul Albrecht. "The new mural pays tribute to our history and provides a great visual to the surrounding apartments, community gardeners, dog park users, and park goers."
The mural will be added to the Downtown Langley Mural Walk map in Downtown Langley Business Association's next map iteration. Take a walk around Downtown Langley and see one-of-a-kind work or artwork; visit discoverlangleycity.ca
