Annie Bergen is a local artist, muralist and arts educator. Her work through the Artists in the Schools program brings her from school to school throughout Manitoba, working with students throughout the research, design and painting process of creating murals to brighten and beautify their schools.
Since Bergen painted her first mural at 17 years of age, she has painted several large-scale murals in Winnipeg and more recently, throughout the Eastman region. Mosaic is another art-form that Bergen enjoys and has been incorporating into her artwork and community projects. The mosaic mural outside of the Red Road Lodge in Winnipeg – called “Restoration” - is a project that she is particularly proud of. This project is a wonderful showcasing of Bergen’s skills not only as an artist but also as a multi-faceted facilitator/administrator. Working with family, friends, and various community groups to engage the main street population in the creation of a fantastic mosaic/mural for the core.
