Community Connections Artwork Reveal!
We are delighted to reveal to you the finished original artworks created for our Community Connections public art project! These incredible pieces, made by four very talented artists, are now on display at the Avalon Mall. See a video walkthrough, photo documentation, and details of the work below.
We thank the four artists, Craig Francis Power, Jessie Donaldson, Tanea Hynes, and José Luis González, for their hard work, and for creating an opportunity for the public to engage with contemporary art in a community setting! We also want to thank the Avalon Mall for hosting us, and for Come Home Year 2022 for their generous support!
The artworks will remain up at the mall until late October, so be sure to check them out as soon as you can! You can find them around the corner from SportChek, on the right wall as you’re walking up the ramp towards Lululemon. We encourage you to take photos (and tag the artists, Come Home Year 2022, The Avalon Mall, and Eastern Edge)!

Community Connections draws from the Come Home Year 2022 Initiative’s goals of showcasing and celebrating local culture here in Newfoundland and Labrador. For this public art installation, artists were asked to explore themes of community, connection, and home. Reflecting on the effect that the pandemic had on connectedness, the project asks how NL-based artists experience community, and what it means to them.
This project was generously funded by Come Home Year 2022.
