For two weeks, Art Fundamentals students were literally counting down the days until the launch of a live mural, initiated by faculty Les Sasaki, co-ordinator Peter Palermo and the Art Fundamentals Events Committee. On October 9th, a ribbon covering the 12′ x 8′ ft white plywood surface was cut, and students began to apply their creativity to the “Live Mural” space.

Students were given the following instructions:


The mural is alive, meant to be painted over and over again with the free-flowing creativity of Sheridan students. The idea came from a live mural maintained by Bachelor of Illustration students in their wing.

The mural launch also served as a fundraiser for the Art Fundamentals program, as they managed to sell $41.21 worth of popcorn during the launch. (The next Art Fundamentals Fundraiser will be a comic book sale taking place October 29th, 30th and 31st).

Like a live thing, the fate of this mural is not predetermined. It may continue to be painted over, gaining layers throughout the year, before eventually being either displayed or stripped and begun anew. All Art Fundamentals students, faculty and staff are welcome to contribute their own creativity to the mural. You can find it in “The Pit,” right outside A110, Trafalgar campus.
