Artist: Young Naturalists Club with Sashi Star, 2011
Made Possible by: Delainey’s Lock & Key, Scout Island Young Naturalists Club, and the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society’s Waste Wise Program

About:

Sick of seeing graffiti on the side of their building, Angie Delainey organized this painting event to both paint over the existing graffiti and hopefully deter future vandalism.  The paint was sourced at Central Cariboo Disposal’s paint recycling program by Mary Forbes of the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society’s Waste Wise Program.  In an average year, the paint recycling program diverts tens of thousands of paint cans and spray cans, which are instead returned to the depot where both the containers and the paint contents are properly recycled.  Community members have the opportunity to use this paint for their home projects.  For information call Central Cariboo Disposal, 5101 Frizzi Road in Williams Lake at (250) 392-5893.

Artistic Notes:

Members of the community and the Young Naturalists Club (over 50 people!) came out on a beautiful spring-weather Earth Day, working under the direction of Sashi Star, who brought cohesion to the many pieces of art being created simultaneously.  This was truly a community effort!  Viewers will notice a red-winged blackbird which represents Scout Island (the bird is part of their logo), and several caribou which represent the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society. Since this wall was painted, there has only ever been one unsanctioned addition – a small “stick man” added to the corner.  All other graffiti has ceased.
