Completed: Summer 2004
Designed by artists Leah Burns, Katy Mulla and Ellen Bleiwas, the mural was inspired by stories told to the artists by Scarborough Storytellers – Bluffers Tales. Working with themes of metamorphosis, transition and migration, members of Bluffers Tales told a series of stories to the mural artists. These stories were translated into a design that celebrates the experiences of community members who left their homes to come to Canada. The second mural in a series of murals dedicated to the monarch, the butterfly is a central figure to the mural, a physical representation of metamorphosis.
Financial support for this project was provided by the City of Toronto, Economic Development Banner and Mural Program and the Graffiti Transformation Project.
