The Langley Heritage Society recently supported the BC Farm Museum Association with a generous donation towards their Mural Painting Project.
BC artists are busy painting murals 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.
Langley Heritage Society treasurer Lotte Elias made the 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.
The grand unveiling ceremony is planned for June 2017.
