Civic Arena Proposal – Nelson, BC

Several years ago, Pinkdog Designs was selected as one of three finalists to design a mural for the Civic Arena and designed and presented this concept art to the Nelson Regional Sport Council. The mural design was inspired by the sports and activities that we love in the Kootenays and the form of panels were created to mirror the undulating landscape of our natural surroundings. A finalist was never chosen for the project, as funding ended up being cancelled, but it was a fun opportunity to design a legacy piece for the City.
