In support of the creation of Lake Country’s newest public art piece on the retaining wall on Davidson Road, Lake Country residents are asked to contribute their old unused household paint.

On June 30th, the artist behind the Davidson Road Public Mural Project, Katie Brennan, will be holding a paint drive. The aim of this paint drive is twofold. First is to find donations of paint to support the cost of materials for the project. Second is to provide Lake Country residents with a safe and useful way to dispose of unwanted and unused household paints.

Brennan is looking for any and all acrylic latex paint that fits the following guidelines:

 

– acrylic / latex primers in any colour

– Matte, eggshell interior or exterior acrylic latex paint in any colour

– paint cans that are at least 1/2 full

 

Residents interested in donating their paint, can do so by dropping off cans to the Winfield Recreation Centre between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Monday to Friday. Please place paint in the bin provided, located on the south side of the building. located at 9830 Bottom Woodlake Rd. Paint can be dropped off between now and July 8.

It is also possible to have paint picked up from your home on June 30 by contacting Katie Brennan at brennankatie@gmail.com or 250-351-9555

The Davidson Road Public Mural Project is a collaborative project created between artist Katie Brennan, residents and artistic collaborators.
