Juicebox 1998 Library Mural
Robin Hodgson and Monica McGarry are the masterminds of the “Juicebox 1998” library mural created in 2018. The “Juicebox 1998” abstract mural echos the contemporary architecture of the TNRD building. And it honors the cutting edge vision of the building architects, Peter Cardew and Nigel Baldwin. This mural brings the wall of the TNRD building to life. While this is not the only abstract mural in town, this one is a testament to the unique look of the TNRD building.
With a playful combination of shapes, lines, and colors, the mural speaks to the history of abstract painting. Abstract painting is a medium often features on the walls of the Kamloops Art Gallery. To balance the materials of the original building, segments of the concrete wall remain visible. Although designed by Hodgson and McGarry, Robin Hodgson, Jennilee Fraser, and Jack Morris took five days to complete. Nevertheless, this realization of an elegant, abstract mural has been well received by the community.
These artists came together to create a beautiful addition to the community that continues to enliven the downtown core. Moreover, these artists have contributed in other ways to the art scene in Kamloops as well.
