A Labyrinth Mural
The 100' wide by 22' tall "Labyrinth of Lifelong Learning" mural covers the north wall of our Seniors' Education Centre at 270 Sherbrook Avenue. The labyrinth represents a symbolic pathway depicting the many faces of our community and our common humanity.
Anne Nesbitt, a long-time CRM instructor, inspired the concept with her labyrinth design. Well known mural artist Charlie Johnston of C5 Artworks designed and oversaw the painting of the mural.
The "Labyrinth of Lifelong Learning" mural project has been a very satisfying project from start to finish, with wonderful co-operation and support from West Broadway groups and residents. Many tourists, passers-by and members stopped to chat, comment on the work, and express their appreciation for the initiative taken by Creative Retirement to beautify the neighbourhood.
