Welcome 41 posters are finally unveiled!

Over 60 paintings line the hallway of Spadina Station
The artwork is finally unveiled! On June 5th, AFCY Executive Director, Julie Frost and TTC chair Josh Colle along with a group of young artists unveiled the artwork for the Welcome 41 project! If you remember from my last post, this summer during the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, TTC subway stations across the city will be filled with paintings done by children across the province, welcoming each of the 41 represented countries. I had the honour of leading a group of young artists from the Weston Mount Dennis neighbourhood in designing and producing of these murals welcoming three countries.

The artwork is unveiled!

You’ll note that none of the names of the countries are painted on the murals, but instead they include visual information such as flags, maps, landmarks, flora and fauna…etc. To find out which countries are represented in the paintings, you can use your knowledge of geography or download a copy of AFCY’s “Cultural Compass” here. Here’s a hint: these three murals will be on display at St. Clair West and Don Mills subway stations. Keep your peepers peeled!

Here are a few images from the unveiling. I’m so proud. Well done, Weston Mount Dennis.
