Photo Mural Project

A Community Created Masterpiece

Displayed on the wall along the staircase, the 46ft by 15ft mural showcases Surrey and its many faces. A true community collaboration, the mural features over 2,000 photos submitted by members of the public. Historic Surrey photos are also included.

From afar, the mural looks like a river which leads to the new Indigenous Hall. The river theme reflects the 1400km of rivers and streams from Surrey’s geography. It emphasizes that rivers have been a connection point for all people in Surrey for thousands of years. It also reminds us that rivers in Surrey are a source of transportation, food, sustainability and connection.

The river theme was inspired by our renewed relationship with our three land-based first nations.
