2019 highlight: Powell River building beautified by mural and landscaping

Catnip creates mural on water reservoir structure on Haslam Street

HILLTOP ART: Landscaping now surrounds the City of Powell River water reservoir atop Haslam Street, accenting a mural created in 2019 by Powell River artist Stefan Fogarty, also known as Catnip.

At a committee of the whole meeting in July, Fogarty said he wanted to reclaim a bit of nature onto the building and adorn it with a water goddess pouring water down the hill from her hands; the result is depicted above.

The committee approved the project, underwriting the cost of the paint required to complete the mural. On the side facing the road, different animals from the local area are featured.
