Gateway Casinos & Entertainment (Gateway) has commissioned Delta artist Gary Nay to create a unique mural for the new Cascades Casino Delta. 

In a news release, Gateway says Nay offers a unique take on his surroundings. His work is thoughtful, with a great sense of play, humour and visual intellect. Nay has previously completed several public murals still on display throughout Ladner and Tsawwassen that have brought a vibrancy and sense of community to the area, added Gateway.

“We knew we wanted to highlight a local artist when we began our search for interesting artwork,” said Tanya Gabara, director of public relations at Gateway Casinos. “As soon as we met Gary it was clear his style was a perfect fit with our Cascades brand.”

Gateway said the Cascades brand is centered on the surrounding local elements and nature themes. The designers have taken cues from nature and redefined them to find their playful side. The overall design approach is casual and offers guests a place to relax or play, with a focus on live entertainment, sports, and gaming.

Gateway said they want this new property to give patrons the same all-senses experience when they visit. 

“I was delighted to be chosen for this project,” said Nay. “My style is aligned with Gateway’s design principles and I am looking forward to having my work showcased in their magnificent new property.”

According to Gateway, this one-of-a-kind mural will measure 150 square metres and is set to be unveiled in conjunction with the grand opening festivities. It will be placed in the lower entrance where all guests will be able to enjoy it as they enter the property.  

Gateway says the project is set to open this fall (although an exact date has not been announced) will feature state-of-the-art meeting and event space, gaming entertainment including approximately 500 slot machines, 18 live table games, stadium-style gaming and multiple dining options.
