My Blue Ladies:
Our official affiliation with Route 66 gives us the credibility of international status as heritage highway advocates.
Art is the ‘Mother’ that makes us equal … Blue symbolizes The People, a product of the stories ~ Gold is the business. Without one, there is no other! Take one component away and none remain…Basic ethics of physics must apply (or) the structure crumbles.
Together, we have the power to drive commerce in a shared economy of a national scope by forming an inclusive alliance to honor the resilience of people, the survivors & builders of our transportation hub.
A ‘Prism’ is what we must become – a solid geometric figure that follows equal and parallel rectilinear paths.
Go National! Art Route Blue owns its product and is the virtual Heart of Art and the assets of stories that equate to its success.
The process will prove itself and roll out by the integrity of the Crescendo (highest point) within the Voice of Art.
Create a pictorial of places (visual) in concert with the voice (audio) on The Field of Dreams platform – build it – they will come!
We live in the Rural with a national focus.The power of Art, creates its own mood to interject with the Alliance and Talk to the Walls; and they in turn will tell the story.
It’s time to Create a Market Plan, Build the Pod Cast and showcase the peoples’ playground that will capture our strength for the voice over art to ‘align’ the stories and turn them to Gold!
In Art We Trust-LORRIE FLEMMING
…Here we are at the start point of the legendary Cariboo Wagon Road that carved a permanent place on Canada’s Western Frontier. A major transportation hub from fur trails-to-steel rails echoing tales of BC’s historic significance to carry our nation through the ages. Our history speaks in many languages…Listen quietly, you will be amazed at what you may hear between the timelines of travel!
Tracing our Trails
Your articulate words speak succinctly to the integrity of your leadership. An educator, motivator, coach and servant leader (the list is endless)!
Our Society is blessed by your contribution to inspire humankind.
My heart is touched by you!
Our heritage speaks succinctly through this land of braided trails! Spreading the spirit of humanity by virtue of echoes, the voices of wisdom resonates time-after-time to move us forward. The eye of the needle is threaded deep within the heart of our heritage and the soul of humankind stands monumental between the spaces of our past.
The ‘Heart of our Heritage’ is deeply rooted and resides within the lineage of Highway One [Canada’s Mother Road] and its multiple ribbon of crossroads threading timeless vestiges into the fabric of society, silently occupying the spaces between cities, townships, villages and national treasures.
“Public Art” is the universal equalizer that stands stately within the soul of humankind and connects art-to-rural-to-roads, via a visual conduit to engage inhabitants of vastly far reaching communities into the mainstream of social opportunity.
“Art Route Blue” defines the spirit of our braided links and holds ‘no’ visible physical boundaries. Magically, out of our past appears a path to the future engrained by the positive power of people, place and purpose. Our mission is to generate an all-inclusive corridor to showcase the value of our past, infused & integrated with endless possibilities along a borderless Heritage Highway.
Accredit is hereby extended to the Creator of Art Route Blue, Master Artist Michelle and her adept Colleague (Stacey) who collaboratively set ‘Art-in-Motion’ for the next generation of travelers to embark on a Dynamic Digital Art Augmentation to add the voice-over-art to enhance the integrity of Canada’s Mother Road!

Art and beauty comes in many forms, including the natural and the handmade , and there’s no reason why, when admiring one, you cannot enjoy the other. And there is no reason that our modern cave masterpieces should not be showcased as invitations for the globe to visit and meander along our highways. The bonus is that travellers can fill the art stops in with small business and community events along the way. Connecting our communities makes sense. Like a giant story book. And it makes more sense if a highway art project like ART ROUTE BLUE is launched with artists and grassroots communities. To keep the jobs, make connections and bring the creative economy to the rural communities and keep our young people talking to the elders. This is a people up road trip. The Canadian Version of ROUTE 66. This art trip is long standing in its vision. Held dear by many and led by Queen of the Road Lorrie Flemming. I am just the conductor and the painter who got to paint way before murals became the explosion of trend that are now. Or maybe these modern cave drawings have always been a huge part of the education and history making of the stories of the people and of nature as we all ride the highway of life. Our Destination Mural Town Art Route is a global grid. It has many more layers to unravel and we are excited as many are using the model to bring Destination ART Routes to their regions. There is blue on those walls though! And the blue beings to the hands of the artists, the visionaries and the first people that have shared fire stories since time began. AR:T ROUTE BLUE details great work across the globe. Some of these artworks are showcased in outdoor settings, others however, are set amidst the most beautiful scenery. Take a look and see community social economics through a new lens. With a content building economy made strong by keeping the people in that system. Our stories are our art and our towns the fires that warm the rural earth. We have made ground at AR:T Route Blue. Destination Mural Town has many tourism organizations and communities abuzz. Destination Routes have been growing in rail and nature trails. Art walks have been around forever and people love to stroll through the streets seeking local treasures. But this AR:T Route is unique as the team of Blue are also trainers, educators, creators, builders, healers, connectors, first responders, homeless, nature protectors, storytellers, painters, sculptors, carvers, singers, youth, elders and all first people from the globe. This is community building from a place of renewal to reimagining. A new form of muraltourism. A content creating system that keeps the content with the creators and the power of all horses in front of one cart. The blue is the stories of many, in a place of global connection, to a system that keeps people and nature connected. Now that is reachable tourism and community economics.
Brief Narrative by Lorrie Fleming October 19, 2019
Dreaming deeper than the sea…From Blue Horses riding higher than the sky to Angels dancing in gold dust, our history speaks voluminously through a multi layered symphony of ethnological origins, cutting through tough terrain. Along this beaten path, Michelle & Stacey forged the framework to unlock the future of travel and braid the trails by the integrity of our roots through connecting “Art-in-Motion”!
Back to the dawn of Michelle’s empowering “Art Route Blue” vision, the vastness of her journey is unyielding, transforming history into an everlasting lifeform, a gift for the ages. The compendious research and supporting doctrine that Michelle and her “Blue Team” gathered on this movement is testament to the arrival of an imminent & magical destination.
As one of the pillars of Michelle’s vision for “Art Alive” along the bloodlines of a “Mother Road”, my personal strength is galvanized by our mutual aspiration to connect humankind on an enriching, educational and cultural journey. This is just the beginning, may the power of people, place and purpose be the drivers on this incredible ribbon of road that’s threaded along our integrated transportation tapestry…
In closing, Michelle – you are the creator of greatness along this enpowering & endless journey, thank you for bringing me aboard your moving canvas!
Painting the Road Ahead
Take it to the wall. This is something that I have done for over thirty years..take it to the wall.
The wall for me has always been a place of healing. A place where I could be messy and let the paint drips fly and my never easily managed hair tangle with the paint and the wind. There is a silence in front of a giant wall. There is noise. The noise of the cars and people and screeching tires, with the constant beep of the pedestrian timers. There is wind and wonder and ice cream coloured smudges on your legs and hands. There is knowledge and meditation. Fear is not around you as you perch from high up on scaffolding. If you could but open paint layer wings and reach the reason most artists seek for the injustices in the world. There is much to learn as a muralist and observer from the wall and much to say.
It is a play and a movie. It is time captured in stories and in the people that entered and left the screen. The wall has been the movie screen to my life.
It follows me like a tattered friend. The surface rich in textures and warmth. Tales of chewed gum and belly laugh hysterical easy days of sun and sprinklers in downtown streets. The art of a muralist is a play. A screenplay.
