WEYBURN – The Weyburn Arts Council is proud to announce the winning design for our large, public art mural project. The winning design was created by Jonnae Haupstein. Jonnae will also be awarded $1000 by the Weyburn Arts Council as a prize.
The mural design contest was announced on January 16th. It was open to all residents of Weyburn and surrounding area. The finished mural will measure 24 by 18 ft. We were looking for graphic, colourful designs that looked to our future.
The mural was to be painted during the annual Show and Shine. Current plan is to create the mural as a community during the Culture Days celebration scheduled for September 25th and 26th. The mural will be created as a giant Paint by Number. Members of Weyburn Arts Council will prepare the mural boards, paint the outlines, and number each area. During the creation event, jar of premixed and numbered paint will be available to anyone wishing to take part.
