Our Sanctuary Mural

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: Adrian Forrow

Our Sanctuary is about the sanctum that Mississauga provides and is intended to evoke an idea of place where all are welcome, can grow and also thrive. The composition pulls visual reference from the architecture of Mississauga's Civic Centre, the natural world, and items from everyday life. Scale is used in a playful way to create a familiar yet surreal landscape where anything is possible.

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.
