The University of British Columbia’s Athletics and Recreation department unveiled an exciting new piece of xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) artwork as part of its Thunderbirds story on Monday, March 13.

The artwork, titled “Thunderbird Takes Flight,” is drawn by Musqueam emerging artist Deanna-Marie Point and is being showcased on one of the massive 12-foot walls of UBC’s long-running Storm the Wall event. The event and its walls are virtually impossible to miss, making this an ideal debut for the art. Over 4,000 students are expected to get up close and personal as they climb over the wall, while thousands more will watch the event as it runs through Wednesday, March 22.

At the unveiling, Deanna-Marie shared a few words about her art: “I wanted to do my best to represent my community, Musqueam, through my art. And I wanted them to be proud of me as a growing artist. And I’m speechless that this has happened. And I’m very excited and very proud. And I have so much respect for the team that chose my art piece and that help work with me.”
