Elements of Industry

Mural Routes Member(s): Joanne Feely DeGraaf Completed: August 2021

Bell Box Mural Project, Ward 3, New Toronto, in collaboration with Lakeshore Arts. Wondering what all the hands are doing? They relate to the industrial past of the New Toronto neighbourhood. Campbell’s Soup (tomato), Good Year (tire), Anaconda Copper and Brass (pipe) , Continental Can (tin) and others called this area home and made it an epicentre of industry in the early 20th century. I wanted to represent the people, collaboration and cooperation that made it all possible. The colours of the raw materials are reflected in the map. The water bubbles are linked to the human element.
