Woven Stories: A Collaborative Public Art Mural at Davis Campus

Last week, Sheridan College unveiled ‘Woven Stories’, a colourful, two-storey public art mural, on the western façade of the Rob Turner Building at its Davis Campus, visible from McLaughlin Road, south of Steeles Avenue. The project was Sheridan’s first large scale foray into experiential design, which concerns how you experience your environment and interact with space.  It also created a reverse internship/co-op learning opportunity for students.  On a functional level, it contributes to energy conservation, rehabilitates an unpleasant space, and adds a visually rich and freely accessible artistic experience to Brampton.
