Warden Underpass Mural

Completed: 2013

Through the collaborative efforts of City of Toronto staff, local arts organization Mural Routes and local artist DeAnne Lamirande, the mural now stands as a visual history of Scarborough occupying both the east and west wall, along with the centre columns of the underpass on Warden Avenue south of Danforth Road. The west wall shows the iconic Bluffs and Elizabeth Simcoe– the woman who gave Scarborough its name. The east wall depicts the historic Bell Estate. Birch trees fill the south centre column and oak trees fill the north centre column–a symbolic joining of Ward 36′s Birch Cliff neighbourhood and Ward 35′s Oakridge community.

This expansive project was managed by Karin Eaton, past Executive and Artistic Director of Mural Routes.
