Paint the Rails Mural
Created by artists AJA Louden and Carla Rae Taylor, the painting of the third mural of the Paint the Rails Legacy Project is currently underway. It is scheduled to be completed on May 27.
This mural brings together the stories of three Edmonton faith communities; Temple Beth Ora, Shiloh Baptist Church and Al Rashid Mosque. It includes a number of illuminated yarn balls containing a mix of images that reflect the stories of the various communities. These images are dispersed so that no one ball represents a specific community, but each is a mixture of cultural experiences and aspirations.
Paint the Rails is a unique partnership between the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights and Edmonton Transit Service that brings important community stories to public spaces.
