Art Project Celebrates 50th Year for Labrador City
The town of Labrador City is celebrating its fiftieth year. It’s a town that was built by brave pioneers who conquered the Labrador wilderness to create a vibrant mining town. Today, it boasts modern amenities, and it is going through another period of growth. Not a lot of people who live here now know what it was like in the ‘good ole days’. But thanks to a group of visual artists and a new exhibition, people can take a look back in time. Reporter Mike Power went to see the paintings along with artist Marjorie O’Brien who explained how the project got started.
