These pictures were taken as these beautiful 4 ft X 8 ft murals left the artist’s studio (Vivian Harder) in south Langley to be delivered to the BC Farm Museum.
Seven BC artists are busy painting murals on 32 large panels depicting various aspects of farming and pioneer life.
Local artists are in the process of designing five murals to be displayed in and outside the BC Farm Museum. The murals will show the evolvement of pioneer life with an emphasis on agricultural development up to the year 1966 when the Farm Museum opened. Some of the artifacts on exhibit in the museum will be featured on the murals.
Last year the Langley Heritage Society recently supported the BC Farm Museum Association with a generous donation towards their Mural Painting Project.
Langley Heritage Society treasurer Lotte Elias made the check presentation to Syd Pickerell, museum director and chair of the murals committee. Ms. Elias stated in her presentation letter “We appreciate the great work you do in preserving the agricultural/pioneer history of this great province, especially our local story.”
Support for the Murals has also come from the Canada 150 Infrastructure Program, the Provincial government, several Foundations and the Township of Langley.
