We want to share with you, photos and video of the community mural project titled LILIA, a “mural” made by the artist of Polish descent, Mr. Krzysztof Wilk. which was unveiled on Saturday, October 27 at the White Eagle Polish Society building.

It is a gift from the city of Montreal, which incurred the cost of this screening for the Montreal Polonia on the occasion of the 100th anniversary celebration of Poland’s recovery of independence. The mural depicts the integration of the Montréal Polish community within Canadian-Quebec culture and also celebrates the local community that lives near the wall.

This is the only such gift in Canada for the Polish community to-date … and we are very proud of it!

Our thanks to all the parties involved : Mr. Krzysztof Wilk and his team of supporters, Ville de Montréal, Arrondissement de Ville-Marie, centre-ville, Bureau d’art public Montréal, Éco-quartier Sainte-Marie, Kolab, The White Eagle Polish Society and all the citizens and community members that contributed to the project.
