A proposed mural in downtown Vernon would pay tribute to a city councillor who lost her decade-long battle with cancer last month.
North Okanagan Artists Alternative (NOAA) secretary-treasurer Brigitte Red said the mural at the corner of 28th Avenue and 31st Street would be a tribute to the “the light of Dalvir Nahal, for her life and work in and for the community of Vernon.”
A draft rendering shows three butterflies surrounded by representations of the local sunflower, balsamroot, that cover the hills in the spring, a report from NOAA reads.
The mural, if permitted by council on Sept. 27, would be completed by senior artists and their young mentees.
“The painting will be completed in such a way that it becomes an interactive vehicle which tourists and citizens alike may stand in front and take ‘selfies.’”
