Two new pieces of public art work have been installed on the south wall of the Pickering Civic Complex featuring original designs by artist Meegan Lim, celebrating the famous Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery and her connections to Durham Region.

The City of Pickering is celebrating the iconic Canadian Author Lucy Maud Montgomery and her many connections to the Durham Region. Two original murals have been created by artist Meegan Lim thanks to the generous funding of the Government of Canada’s Tourism Relief Fund. The mural illustrations reflect the Anne and Maud tourism route programs inspired by Anne of Green Gables featured at Pickering Museum Village and highlight literature and novels available at Pickering Libraries. They also commemorate the Pickering Museum Village as the filming location for many movies and television shows about the Anne of Green Gables books.

The artist - Meegan Lim is an illustrator and emerging arts facilitator based in Brampton & Toronto. She is known for her detailed illustrations focusing on food and cultural identity, and the vast stories that exist within those intersections. She aims to create art that is inviting in its aesthetic, thoughtful in its research, and illuminating with its subject matter.
