Kids Play .. Making Mural Art Count in Toronto ...

Murals Routes Canada Helps Kids Play!

Mural Routes is delighted to introduce you to the latest public art mural in Toronto, Ontario. "Kids Play" was painted by artist Bill Wrigley at the Old Leslie Street Underpass (Leslie and Sheppard) over 33 days this summer and fall. The mural was completed on October 11, 2006

It was a very challenging project which Bill undertook with his usual zest and the result is a stunning improvement to the grey drabness of the underpass. The vibrant colours and playful motif of the mural are captivating to the passers-by.

Funded by the City of Toronto and initiated by the local councillor of Ward 24, David Shiner, the mural is painted on the two abutment walls and four center columns of the bridge crossing Sheppard Avenue just west of Leslie Street.

The mural is the culmination of efforts to promote public art in the community and is a collaboration between Toronto Culture, City Planning’s Urban Design Section and Mural Routes.
