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