The BMO National Mural Series is a public art campaign in collaboration with STEPS, BMO Bank of Montreal and Canadian artists. This project will bring new public art installations to BMO branches from coast to coast that reflect themes of community, family and diversity.
Project Type: Permanent Exhibit
Artists: Alice Jennex
"Family Group" presents the shapes of two adults holding a baby in their arms, with the depiction of a Nova Scotian landscape within their forms. The painting is a double image, of both the family and the landscape, visually connected together. The intention is to connect the meaningfulness of family belonging within the setting of a natural environment, a place which creates a home, and raises the importance of sustainability for our communities.
These works of art were made possible by BMO Bank of Montreal 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.
