Sunnyside Branch’s Celebratory Stairwell Mural Ribbon Cutting/Signing Party - Friday, October 25, 4:30–6:00 p.m.


We are celebrating our wonderful community-created mural on our stairwell designed by Wild Pigments Art Studio with artistic pieces by the children in our neighbourhood.  Our special guest will be David Chernushenko, Councillor for Capital Ward, City of Ottawa.

The Sunnyside Branch had a “Color our Stairwell” contest, in which children were asked to draw a picture.  Participating children were then automatically entered into a draw to win an opportunity to make a special art piece for our stairwell mural.  All entry pictures are on display in our Early Literacy Area.  The draw took place on Monday, September 16, and the winners were: Kiara & Matteo, Max & Sophie, Lara & Ivy, Dylan & Ella, Maya, Sarah B., Lauren & Madeline, Hannah, Dana, Skyler, Mira, Belle & Tru, Lillian, Sofia, Anna, Alice, Kate S., Kate & Nick, Janesy & Shreya and Alexander.
Their prize was a chance to go to Wild Pigments Art Studio to create an artistic piece for the Sunnyside Branch Children’s Stairwell Mural. Now their creations will be added to Sunnyside’s Children’s Stairwell Mural.
At the celebration, these young artists will have a chance to sign their name by the piece they created.

For more information, please contact the Sunnyside Branch.
