Mural celebrating Aboriginal life to be unveiled at Allan Gardens Park
Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam (Ward 27, Toronto Centre Rosedale) will be joined by First Nations artists and representatives from First Nations organizations in unveiling one of the largest outdoor murals in Canada, on the construction fencing around the watermain construction project site in Allan Gardens.
Date: Friday, November 9, 2012
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Location: Allan Gardens, 19 Horticultural Ave
(access through Gerrard Street East between Sherbourne and Jarvis)
Entitled “All My Relations”, the mural beautifies the temporary wooden fencing surrounding the main construction site for the Gerrard Watermain Replacement Project in Allan Gardens and will be in place for three and a half years until project completion. The size of two football fields, this artwork is a visual representation of First Nations life and culture in Toronto.
Led by nationally recognized, award winning artists, Tannis Nielsen and Philip Cote, more than 20 artists from the First Nations community have come together to design and paint the mural.
