JRA Culture Committee Meeting - Guest Speaker
The giant mural, funded through the city’s Graffiti Transformation Program, is the culmination of four weeks of work by five youth artists and two lead artists: Joshua Barndt and Jamie Bradbury. The mural is located where the new West Toronto Railpath intersects with Dupont at Dundas and in front of the new bike lanes along Dupont. The mural which has been titled Strength in Numbers celebrates the Junction, paying homage to its industrial past rooted in the railway, and highlighting its ongoing development as a diverse neighbourhood-oriented community.
