Magic at the Arboretum by Natalie Very B.

Location: Humber College North Campus - 3rd Floor E Building (Outside Carol Reid Early Childhood Education Lab)



Magic at the Arboretum celebrates the diversity and vastness of the natural environment nestled in the Humber Arboretum, which is located within the traditional and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit. The mural was created in response to the energy of the space in the summertime. A celebration of colour and life as viewed through the eyes of a loving presence who can see beyond the human mind and into the perfect patterns of Mother Nature. The peaceful animals remind us of the importance of living in harmony with one another, sharing space, light, and nourishment.

This work by Natalie Very B. invites us to take a mindful pause during a busy day to reflect on the interconnectedness of life and land.
