About This Exhibit
The Toronto Mural Archive Exhibit reflects on the history of mural art in the city. The Toronto Mural Archive is a research project and touring informational exhibit, the first of its kind to survey the history of mural art in Toronto. Mural Routes has gathered articles, information and stories, taking time to reflect on the field of public mural art’s developments so far. We have combined our research together to share ‘the story’ of murals in Toronto in a touring exhibit. The archive provides context to both critically reflect and inspire the future mural art movement in Toronto, and to provide a template for other Ontario cities to follow.
Touring Exhibit Locations
The Toronto Mural Archive Exhibit will tour in 2018, in gallery spaces across Toronto. Each exhibit will coincide with an speakers event open to the public – with themes ranging from reflecting on the stories and history of the local mural scene, to innovations and looking towards the future.
