Something New?

mural bison higgins underpassI often walk through the Higgins underpass in downtown Winnipeg on my way to various volunteer and work commitments.  So I was surprised the other day to discover what seemed like a new mural on the underpass walls.  I had never seen it before.  I’ve found out now that it was recently discovered while the wall of the underpass was being pressure washed to prepare it for repainting. bison mural higgins underpassApparently the mural is a couple of decades old and there are plans to try to find the original artist and fix the mural. The mural of the bison presents a glimpse into the city’s past.  Almost every time I walk through Point Douglas and into the North End I see something new.  I love that.

    Very interesting! Every time we drive through the city we see new murals.
    Over the years in many of our travels we have seen cities with murals and always love studying them, they tell the story of the people that live there.
