We're excited to coordinate Coquitlam’s contribution to the Canada 150 Mosaic project mural! Coquitlam residents are invited to paint 4” x 4” tiles that will become part of Coquitlam’s mosaic. Each tile will later be assembled into a large mural grid, magically transforming the paintings into a unified mosaic that celebrates Coquitlam's history.
