Titled "Taking Root," the short clip features a time lapse video of the creation of the mural alongside the MidPen Housing complex.
In the description, she explains that the land the housing complex now sits on was once a toxic site from industrial pollution and that the fiddlneck wildflower was the first to sprout up on the land. While the flower is the iconic mural's main highlight, it also features the word “welcome” in several different languages at its root and vignettes that illustrate the city’s agricultural past and its vision for the future.
