The MuralsofWinnipeg.com website has been documenting Winnipeg's murals since 2003. Each year, they bestow Mural of the Year honours and the 2013 winner has just been announced.
"Bill Norrie: Legacy of Leadership" by Michel Saint Hilaire and Mandy van Leeuwen is located at the corner of Langside and Ellice. A West End location for a West End son !
I was honoured to be one of the judges and have to admit that this was my top choice. Not only the subject matter, but the scale and incredible detail of the mural make it a head turner !
Kudos to everyone involved in the project !
