Over the summer, Greater Victoria Harbour Authority reached out to local elementary schools and invited classes down to Ogden Point to take a tour of the Unity Wall and the shop where the panels were being painted. This video, produced by Cormorant Pictures, shows us what became of those tours.

This is happening! A few #UnityWall mural painters have stuck around to take on this project. They are covering the outer side of the breakwater with simplified designs from Phase I and incorporating the wolf heads from Phase III. Seeing as panels will take a harsh beating on the outside of the wall, spray paint and stencils are being used so it will be easy to maintain the designs. Come check out their progress, they're usually around on sunny days! Photo courtesy Dean Kalyan Photography #yyj #VictoriaBC #mural #FirstNations #art #OgdenPoint
