The Town of Oakville invited artist Asli Alin to create a temporary artwork for the neighbourhood community centre responding to the theme of “Connextions”.
This mural installation showcases temporary public artwork to build community spirit and reflect on the idea of reconnecting communities.
The artist offers: "I wanted to create an artwork that reflects a strong relationship to the site and context, while celebrating an inclusive community, connectivity and self expression.”
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.
