Two ten-thousand square foot murals have been gracing the sides of Regina’s Hill Towers the past couple weeks.
The murals commemorate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation.
Thursday morning at 11:30 a.m. the official unveiling took place at City Square Plaza.
Angela Lockhart Marketing Manager with Harvard Developments said installing the large commemoration was no easy task.
“It’s a vinyl wrap that’s perforated,” said Lockhart. “So you can see through it inside the building. It took over 500 man-hours to get the project completed.”
Lockhart says she has heard lots of positive feedback during the installations.
“Everyone has been really excited to see then go up,” said Lockhart. “It was pretty exciting to see the progression as the pieces were being installed. A lot of people were watching to see what it would look like when it was complete.”
Lockhart says, they are awaiting official confirmation, but believe the murals are the two largest commemorations in the country.
“I have been in touch with Heritage Canada who has been working on the Canada 150 celebrations,” said Lockhart. “But they haven’t confirmed they have seen anything bigger. But they were very impressed with what we’ve done.”
