Take Me Higher

Mural Routes Member(s): Elena Martoglio Completed: August 31, 2021

This mural was a collaboration between Ottawa based artist, Ryan Smeeton, and Ontario resident, Elena Martoglio.
It was envisioned and designed by Elena Martoglio with the intention of merging glass mosaics and aerosol paint.

The title “Take Me Higher” is in response to the life changing events of COVID-19. The mural offers an optimistic view through which we can all reach and aim for. Despite the conditions and consequences we’ve all had to endure, the mural highlights the potential we all carry within. No matter what the circumstances, playfulness is a way through hardship, and imagination offers the ability to overcome complex situations.
