Lots to ‘sea’ in new mural

Semiahmoo Shopping Centre art part of aquarium contest

A freshly painted mural at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre is opportunity for young and old alike to ‘sea’ what they know about underwater life.

What Do You Sea? challenges visitors to the South Surrey mall to identify 11 sea mammals featured in a colourful mural completed this month on the wall just inside the north entrance.

The contest is being held in conjunction with the Vancouver Aquarium, with one winner of a family visit for four to the aquarium being drawn every Sunday through Nov. 17.

The grand prize winner, to be drawn after 5 p.m. Nov. 16, will receive a family visit to the aquarium plus a sea otter encounter (encounter participants must be at least eight years old).

Entry forms are available at the shopping centre’s customer service desk. Once complete, they can be deposited in the draw barrel located in centre court.

Semiahmoo Shopping Centre spokesperson Jeri Cox said the mural will also be presented as a learning opportunity for students. Elementary schools will be invited to plan field trips to the mural starting in January, she said, and the Vancouver Aquarium has offered each child that visits with their school discounted family visits to the aquarium.
