Though We Roam, It's Always Home

The BMO National Mural Series is a public art project in collaboration with STEPS and BMO Financial Group. This project will bring new public art installations by Canadian artists to BMO branches from coast to coast that reflect themes of community, family and diversity.

Project Type: Permanent Exhibit

Artists: Laura Forrester

"Though We Roam, It’s Always Home" was inspired by the seasonal diversity of the region and the potential that can be found here for its residents. As a life-long Frederictonian, Laura found inspiration for this mural in one of Fredericton’s most iconic views: a uniting image that brings the North and the South sides of the city together.

These works of art were made possible by BMO in collaboration with STEPS Public Art. BMO’s National Mural Series was designed to create opportunities to celebrate local communities and the people who live and visit them. By working with hyper local artists to design murals with meaning and impact specific to each location, BMO hopes to bring art to locations where artists and community members might not otherwise have an opportunity.

At BMO, we are proud to be partners in these communities, celebrate our customers, and support local artists. These beautiful pieces of art not only express BMO’s values and celebrate diversity they also provide opportunities to surprise and delight those visiting our branches. We look forward to expanding this program and curating many more murals in branches across Canada.
