Rowntree Mills Pathway mural

Artist: Khaula Siddique

Rowntree Mills Park, 155 Rowntree Mill Rd, North York, ON M9L 2K1

This mural was painted through community consultation with Arts Etobicoke and four other mural artists; Yusra Mukhtar, Kaya Joan, Moises Frank and Hemangi Shroff (Please see their profiles for their part of the mural).
The mural was painted using outdoor exterior acrylic paints. The picnic blanket, the fruit basket and the hint of the Mad Hatter’s tea party are part of the theme of inviting the community to a welcoming space, to share each other’s company, good food and a little bit of magic.

In Our Nature

Artist: The E.W.O.C. Project, Claire Browne, Connie Tong, and Sarah Alinia Ziazi

Toronto Zoo, 2000 Meadowvale Rd, Toronto, Scarborough, ON M1B 5K7, Canada

*Please note: this was a temporary mural installation.
In our Nature is a community-minded multidisciplinary public art project that celebrates Women of Colour in the Scarborough community through five mural panel installations and musical performances. The murals will spotlight BIPOC women in Scarborough, who are active in community work, and feature them in a green space, changing the narrative around this group’s access, perceived safety and sense of belonging in public spaces. The artwork will purposefully degrade over time to reveal the underset images of the featured individuals beneath the greenery – their faces will be seen emerging from the ground. This is a 2021 City of Toronto Cultural Hotspot Signature Project in partnership with Mural Routes, the E.W.O.C. Project, the Community Arts Guild and the Toronto Zoo.
