'The River Keepers,'

The River Keepers

Artist: Dom Laporte

820 Somerset St W, Ottawa, ON, Canada

Artist’s statement: “This mural design entitled ‘The River Keepers’ is meant to symbolize the proximity of Ontario and Quebec as these two provinces are connected by way of the Ottawa river. The local community is very much an amalgamation of residents from these provinces and this mural is meant to commemorate that connection.

Five murals displayed on a sunny day at the Toronto Zoo. The murals are of realistically painted individuals emerging from pink, purple and blue flowers, as well as abstractly painted shrubbery.

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.
