The Downtown Vernon Association has invested considerable resources into the creation of the 27 amazing works of art that grace our downtown buildings. These murals depict the history, culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today.
The mural project was a multi-year collaborative effort that included youth employment, revitalization, and heritage conservation strategies. Our newest addition to the murals was painted in the summer of 2013 and is located on the side of the Sutton Building, at 2749 30th Street. It depicts the Internment Camps in Canada during WW1, one of which was in Vernon.
Many thanks to the Government of Canada, City of Vernon, Artists, Community and Downtown Merchants, all who supported the projects.
