A design competition was administered to select artwork that would communicate the goals and services of the Recreation & Culture Division. The design would be printed onto adhesive-backed vinyl and applied onto 5 window panes of the divisional offices.

Community, the design created by Thunder Bay artist Callen Banning, depicts a variety of people of all ages benefitting from the services provided by the City. Arts and culture, children and youth programs, events, community centres, recreational programs, and older adult programs are represented.

The offices of the Recreation & Culture Division are located within Victoriaville Mall and face a hallway frequented by members of the public. The art competition was an opportunity to showcase local artwork and support the integration of art in daily life while providing a functional privacy screen for City staff. Project funding was provided by the Recreation & Culture Division.
