New mural installed at QEPCCC
Professional artist Emily May Rose’s fun and bright design was the winning proposal for a mural wrap to cover the generator located at the Queen Elizabeth Community and Cultural Centre.
Made with careful consideration for colour and composition to create works that are both beautiful and meaningful, the QEPCCC Generator mural brings together aspects of the local arts and culture, recreation, nature, and history of Oakville in a piece that reflects the community centre.
Emily May Rose is a Toronto-based artist and illustrator. She explores urban themes and her own personal experiences living in the city, generally placing animals like raccoons into the scenarios in a humorous way to make light of their situation.
