Bang. Bang! Orangutan! Bump and swish; burble and slosh. Something’s rolling, rolling, rolling, back and forth, up on deck.

Call For Artists – Selkirk’s First Mural

This spring semester, students will be creating a large mural art installation for display in The Pit. The theme is “A Healthy Campus Experience” and will be Selkirk College’s first mural.

The project is being led by Human Services instructor, Matty Hillman. Matty has been painting public art and facilitating community mural projects for the last decade in the West Kootenays and on Vancouver Island. He has had pieces on display in group and independent shows as well as completed commissioned murals for several local businesses such as Cake Betty and Whitewater Ski Resort. He will also be contributing to this year’s mural festival in Nelson. Matty’s website can be found here.

Designing and painting the Selkirk mural will take place at the Castlegar Campus, during the week of June 19-22, 2018. There will be free food and a small honorarium for students who participate.

For students who would like to join in, art experience is an asset, but not necessary!

Contact Matty Hillman for more details on how to participate.
