Mural Design Challenge

OCC Mural Design Challenge

It is with great pleasure that we announce the results of the Mural Design Challenge as voted on by you, the members.

Winner: Tamsin Carne

Congratulations, Tamsin! Tamsin’s artwork captivated us with its originality and creativity. Her talent shines brightly, and we're thrilled to recognize her exceptional contribution to our contest. Her design serves as a visual representation of the spirit and inclusivity that serve as our mission statement.TamsinCarne_Mural.jpeg

Runner-up: Anna Li

Congratulations, Anna! In consideration of overwhelming feedback, the Committee and Board have agreed to award Anna a prize in recognition of her unique perspective and skillful execution embodying the sense of history, community, and camaraderie within our Club.


We extend our heartfelt gratitude to both Tamsin and Anna for participating in the Challenge – their passion and dedication will enrich our Club and will serve as an inspiration to us all. 

Award Presentation

On April 25th, 2024, Tamsin and Anna were invited to the Club for an informal awards & prize presentation.  On Sunday September 22, 2024 as part of OCC's 2024-25 Season Open House, Tamsin and Anna will join us for a formal presentation with the members as we unveil the artwork along the Sheet 8 walls.
