Giant Birch Tree

Organization: Mural Routes

Style: Artist Mentoring

Mural Routes Member: Rob Matejka

This was the first mural in the Birch Cliff Community Mural project: a partnership with residents of Birch Cliff and Mural Routes. The goal of the project is to improve the neighbourhood through mural art, replacing the sense of neglect with a sense of pride. The aim is  to “reforest” the area with birch tree themed murals. Starting in 2012, the project continues to grow with new birch themed murals added almost every year.
