Pillars of Strength – Front Line Heroes

Mural Routes Member(s): Karen Roberts

The mural is painted on 3 support pillars at the front entrance to the building. It features front line heroes – a doctor, a nurse, a personal support worker (PSW) and several residents, young and old. The uniformed heroes have their hands raised, working with the community, supporting the building, and protecting the residents. In medical uniforms, but they have superhero crests and the doctors lab coat flies like a cape, offering safety from harm to a senior.
The St. Clair O’Connor Community staff have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic to care for the residents of the long term care facility, as well as those living in independent living apartments and families in townhouse living spaces. SCOC knows first hand how important it is for everyone to do their part to support each other. They are thankful for the front-line staff that have saved their lives, counselled them, and continue to help them through the pandemic.
This tribute to our Front Line Heroes was a special project commissioned by StreetARToronto, 2020.
