Birch Cliff Community Mural Project

Mural Routes was approached by the Birch Cliff Village community to find ways of improving their neighbourhood through mural art, thinking that a themed mural project would help to replace the sense of neglect that exists on Kingston Road with a sense of pride.

This project is a partnership with Birch Cliff Village Residents Mural Committee, long-time residents with a strong commitment to the neighbourhood. Completed projects: Win-a-Mart Variety at 1564 Kingston Rd.; Kingston Rd @ Warden Ave.; and Wimpy’s diner at 1489 Kingston Rd.

For more information and ways you can be involved,
e-mail Tara Dorey, Program Coordinator.

Greenwood Village Mural Project

The Greenwood Village mural Bricks and Wagons - A Greenwood Allegory was conceived by lead artist Jim Bravo, who wanted to look back to an age “when children could play in the street”. The mural was created by Bravo, Anthony Delacruz and Em Ciobanica, with help from Mural Routes Leadership Training in Mural Making graduates and others.

Business owners, led by wall owner
Lefteris Karagianis, and residents wanted to kickstart a positive change in the area with a public art project. They were concerned  about loitering and minor tagging, and hoped that the project would bring out the artistic potential of the community.

Bricks and Wagons is located at 1289 Gerrard St. East, on the intersection of Greenwood Ave., Toronto.

Puzzle Mural

The concept of the mural was developed by artist Elaine Teguibon as part of an independent study project for the Leadership Training in Mural Making program 2011. The design incorporates the values of YouthLink and the faces of several of the youth participants.

Toronto City Councillor Michelle Berardinetti directed a portion of the Beautiful Streets budget towards the project. Youth artists Elaine Teguibon, Tara Dorey and Raymond Cho worked under the direction of Program Director Rob Matejka and with support of several summer students, to transfer the design onto the puzzle pieces, which they created out of MDO Plywood Panels.

Puzzle can be viewed at YouthLink, 747 Warden Ave., Toronto.
