Kickflip was created with artist Colleen Ulliac and was initiated by EPS who wanted to see a site where youth hang out revitalized. We hoped to have some youth with community service hours participate in the project. This proved more difficult than initially anticipated. However, we received a great deal of positive feedback from area youth and subsequently plan to include one local young man in the mural.
This project was funded by the City of Edmonton Mural Program and by the Stony Plain Road and Area Business Association.
A special thank you goes out to Paul St. Arnaud from the City of Edmonton.
