In progress: New tree mural on Bloor St.

You may have noticed over the last few days that the south side of the Bloor St. railway underpass between Perth Ave. and Dundas St. West has received a coat of green paint. Today, the green paint has sprouted some new trees.

I snapped a few photos on my way home from work, and had a brief chat with the artists who had just finished up their day of painting. They will complete this City-funded project over the next couple of days.

More details and photos to come later. But for now, enjoy the sight of another blank wall being transformed into a colourful work of art. I look forward to seeing this in its completed form!

a welcome sight!

Is someone from the JT area completing this project?

Not sure...

I didn't get many details. I just saw the guys there on my way home from work. Grabbed my camera, and they were just leaving as I arrived and weren't too chatty. But they're finishing off over the next couple of days. Don't know much about them, if they're local, etc... except that it's a city-funded project, apparently. I'm guessing part of the City's Clean and Beautiful initiative.
