Leslieville Mural

Completed: 2016

In the summer of 2016, after 14 months of planning, the Leslieville Mural at the landmark corner of Queen & Jones was complete. The mural, designed and painted by renowned Toronto Grafitti Muralist Elicser Elliot in partnership with the Ralph Thornton Centre, was developed at the request of the local community to replace the earlier ‘Alexander Muir’ mural – a much-loved symbol for the neighbourhood. The updated mural continues to reflect the values, vibrancy, diversity, and historic character of the area and has become its new signature image.

The mural theme “In days of yore, on Leslieville shore, put down your phone and daydream under a Maple Tree” pays homage to the past, present and future of Leslieville by depicting a typical Leslievillian, contemplating the future, while resting under a giant maple tree.
