Jordan Bennett's Pi'tawe'k was created in 2019 for the Bonavista Biennale, a month-long contemporary art event on the Bonavista Peninsula. After the Biennale, Bennett's artwork was acquired by the Town of Bonavista, and it remains in the community.

Located on the exterior wall of the Wellness Centre building, a former high school, the large-scale mural measures 30' x 50'. Bennett's design comprises an assemblage of artforms expressing the Mi'kmaq and Beothuk cultures. These forms were made with reflective material and they are illuminated at night by the headlights of passing vehicles.
