Welcome to Squamish

This large-scale mural was painted on the side of a building during the Squamish Wind Festival for the Arts in 2020. In white and orange it depicts the words “Welcome to Squamish”, “Ḵ’ay̓áchtn Skwxwú7mesh ” in the Skwxwú7mesh language against a backdrop of greens, with foliage surrounding the words on either side.

Artist Statement
“Consulting with a Squamish Nation language expert, I put a great deal of thought and consideration into the design of the piece, which features ‘welcome’ in both Squamish and English and bright pops of colour to bring vibrancy to even the dreariest of rainy days.”
