About the Mural Map

When Mural Routes began, our vision was to create four local “mural routes” in Scarborough (now part of the amalgamated City of Toronto). Since then our vision has grown. We discovered that there are murals everywhere and we are now helping to link the “mural routes” right across Canada.

Mural Routes Murals

Since 1990 Mural Routes has worked with communities and artists to create over 50 murals across Toronto.

Laissez-la toujours chanter – Hommage à Alys Robi

Covering the wall of the Lion d’Or Cabaret, the mural pays tribute to Alys Robi, her career, her passion and her determination, but it also celebrates the golden years of Montreal cabarets (the 1940s). The large-scale portrait of Alys Robi is rendered in shades of blue to reflect her Québécois heritage and the Blue Note jazz aesthetics of the time. The background consists of references to the singer’s life illustrated as an array of graphic elements.
The mural is part of a series entitled Hommage aux bâtisseurs culturels montréalais initiated in 2010 to highlight the contribution of the creative minds and forces behind Montreal’s reputation as an exceptional North American city. Read More
