Strength In Numbers

Artist: Quentin VerCetty, Curtia Wright, Joshua Barndt, Jamie Bradbury, Gifty Singh, Hayley Fromstein and Keinon Grant

Dupont Street & Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON, Canada

Mural created with ArtStarts for the Junction region as part of the Graffiti Transformation project.
The underpass graced by this bike mural is a gateway for those heading to the Junction, but it’s a destination now, too. The 400-foot creation painted by seven artists over four weeks this summer turned a mundane slab of concrete into a giant uniting message: strength in numbers – a critical mass reminder for the city’s wide spectrum of cyclists.

Ours to Tell

Artist: Royal Crown Student's - Guided by Francine Freeman

Royal Crown Academic School 4620 Finch Ave E, Toronto, ON M1S 4G2

A week spent with the art class of Royal Crown School inspiring some amazing students to create change, and inspire others. The three people are to represent the past (Harriet Tubman), the present (Obama) and the future (RCS Student’s), with a mirror in the center to show that it doesn’t take someone historic or famous to create change. Look in the mirror, YOU are the future of the black community!
