As part of ArtworxTO, WATERMARKED is an experimental mural project that will allow artists and community members of all ages and abilities to experiment with rain-activated paint while co-creating a temporary public artwork at the Port Union Village Common Park in Scarborough.
This project aims to push 12 emerging and established artists’ creativity to create designs that combine colourful areas with Rainworks invisible spray, which appears when it rains. Community members will be able to participate in stencil workshops and leave their mark on the mural, while they reflect on the role of water and its importance to them spiritually, mentally, and physically.
Mural Routes will produce this 5,000 sq. feet mural over four weeks, on Fridays & Saturdays, 11am-6pm, from August 12 to September 3, 2022. On September 4th, an event will be hosted to unveil the resulting public artwork, which will be visible from September through November, and will be “naturally” revealed every time it rains.
