Musical Healing

Artist: Désiré Betty [D.BETTY]

165 Augusta Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, M5T 2L4 [Augusta and Spadina]

My piece entitled “Musical Healing” [May 2, 2022] is inspired by the undying magic of music and its good vibrations – it heals the soul in so many ways.

Commissioned to complete a planter mural in Kensington Market, Toronto by the Kensington Market BIA. Thank you for the opportunity to beautify the community and get an early start on the public art season!

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.

Kind of Blue

Artist: Ray Vidal

87 Hounslow Heath Road, Toronto

Huge thank you to @kj.bit for putting on an amazing Mentor and Mentee mural jam in Oct 2021.

This is the garage I got and I immediately saw a piano. I wanted to transform the windows into black keys that glow at night. It is a whimsical play on a jazz pianist.
