Walk With the Dreamers is a new mural at Giving Gifts & Company - 4570 Main Street, Vancouver - by artist, Laura Uy, that was inspired by the quote:
“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it...”
- Wilfred Peterson

Laura Uy won the Mural Contest at Giving Gifts & Company in May 2015. Store customers and the community were invited to vote on the mural design they like best. Almost 500 people voted at the store and on social media for the mural design they liked best. Laura's mural won the contest. "Flowers in her Hair is an ode to everyone out there with dreams, passion and creativity. The little girl represents the epitome of a dreamer - someone who aspires for greater things, and inspires others while doing so. The flowers are a flourishing tapestry of art, growth and new ideas. It is a call to all creatives to unite in community, spread positivity, and add colour to our world. The painting is also for those who were once children, and wish to be once more. We can all learn something from children and their innocence, hopeful nature and endless sense of adventure. Who knows what we could accomplish if we all had a few more flowers in our hair?"
