The newest outdoor work in Prince Rupert from Russell Mather is
now on display in the downtown area near Mariner's Park

Transition Prince Rupert's Paint The Town project continues to unveil new works of art for the community to explore, with the most recent presentation now found on the walls of the Lax Kw'alaams Business Development Office on 1st Avenue West.

Located across from the Mariner's Park area, the outdoor display was created by Russell Mather, assisted by local youth in the community and installed on the exterior walls of the Lax Kw'alaams building earlier this month.

It has been a busy year for The Paint the Town project which is assisted by a range of local sponsors , with a mural on the wall of the Argosy on Third Avenue West revealed earlier this year.

Still to come are works from Kelli Clifton and the students at Conrad School on the east side, which is soon to be revealed.

As well planning is underway for next Spring and a project set  for the walls of the Nisga'a Hall in the city's downtown core.
