Artist Emily May Rose’s fun and bright design was the winning proposal for a mural wrap to cover the generator located at the Queen Elizabeth Community and Cultural Centre. Made with careful consideration of colour and composition to create works that are both beautiful and meaningful, the mural reflects the community centre by combining aspects of the local arts and culture, recreation, nature, and history of Oakville.
Emily May Rose is a Toronto-based artist and illustrator. She explores urban themes and her own personal experiences living in the city, generally placing animals like raccoons into the scenarios in a humorous way to make light of their situation.
Town of Oakville
The Town of Oakville is located on Treaty 14 and 22 lands, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee. Oakville is home to many different First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. A vibrant and impressive community within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the Town of Oakville is a beautiful lakeside town with a strong heritage, preserved and celebrated by residents and visitors alike. Since the 1800s, it has become one of the most coveted areas to live and work in Ontario with 225,000 residents calling Oakville home. The town offers all the advantages of a well-serviced urban centre with first-rate facilities and amenities, while also maintaining its small-town feel.
