Excerpt from The Reach Gallery Museum:
The CITI/SEEN public art initiative pairs an experienced mural artist with a team of talented emerging artists to create murals in Abbotsford. The program is part of Emerge, an incubator for creative talent at The Reach Gallery Museum. The inaugural CITI/SEEN mural was created on back of the Hemingway’s Books building in Historic Downtown Abbotsford by lead artist Tara-Lynn Kozma-Perrin with collaborators Madeleine Hildebrandt, Joshua Koole, Alayna Tam & Rio Zapata.

Artists Statement
Before colonization, two streams used to converge in the area where the mural is today. The patterns in the mural resemble fish scales and reed mats which pay homage to the history of the land and its Indigenous inhabitants. The text is drawn from Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem “The Brook.” According to the memoirs of Abbotsford resident Margaret Dunlop Hutchinson, she and her classmates would recite the poem beside the streams.
