The Ferndale Arts Commission, in collaboration with the Lhaq’temish Foundation, has completed two new murals on the west side of the Pioneer Pavilion in Pioneer Park. The murals were designed and painted by local artists Jason LaClair and Yolanda Felix-Wilbur and pay tribute to the shared history of Ferndale and the Lummi Nation.
“You cannot tell the history of Ferndale without beginning with the Lummi Nation,” said Mayor Greg Hansen, “and what better place for that than Pioneer Park?”
LaClair’s piece is titled “One From the Heart” and speaks to the shared love of all people, especially during the challenges of the pandemic. Felix-Wilbur’s piece tells the story of the Lummi Nation itself and their canoe journey.
Both murals are available for viewing on the side of the Pioneer Pavilion at 2004 Cherry St. in Ferndale. A third mural is planned for Summer of 2022.
