About the Artwork

The mural represents the 1929 collapse of the Whitevale Bridge in the centre, and on each side are the flora and fauna associated with the valley of West Duffins. The central image is taken from a photograph of the collapsed bridge in 1929. Salmons are shown spawning in West Duffins. Either side has images of the wildlife around Whitevale and west Duffins: red-wing blackbird, great blue heron, mallard, blue jay and cardinal, a monarch butterfly on a milk weed plant and a snapping turtle.
