Forest of Birch Trees

Mural Routes Member(s): Tara Dorey Rob Matejka Completed: 2013

Mural Routes created three new murals in Toronto’s Birch Cliff community in 2013, as part of the Birch Cliff Community Mural Project. The partnership project now totals six unique birch tree themed murals along Kingston Rd from Warden Avenue to Birchmount Road.

“Forest of Birch Trees” was painted on panels and is now installed, towering three stories high on the side of Birch Cliff Public School. The mural was designed and led by Rob Matejka, alongside lead emerging artists Tara Dorey, Anthony Delacruz and Jennifer Moyer. A team of eight youth and volunteers were mentored throughout the summer to enlarge the design, cut and sand panels, prime, and paint these monumental trees under the direction of the lead artists.
