Work has begun to install a mural on the northeast alcove of the Plaza parkade at Fifth Avenue and Queensway Street.

The successful artist is Facundo Gastiazoro from Smithers. His design has been painted on panels and is being attached to the building. The work is expected to be fully installed by Wednesday.

The mural is sponsored by the BC Northern Real Estate Board (BCNREB) and is meant as a gift to Prince George to mark the BCNREB’s  50th anniversary. The board is a non-profit association of more than 360 members that serves the real estate needs of Northern BC.

Submissions were adjudicated by a team consisting of members of the real estate board, the city’s public art advisory group, and city staff.
