If you are familiar with Toronto, you will know that street art is nothing new to the city’s vibrant Kensington Market area but this is officially bananas (and carrots). A group of local volunteers known as the Toronto Public Space Committee painted the city’s first road mural in the middle of Baldwin Street.
Inspired by Portland Oregon’s City Repair Project, road murals have spread to cities from coast to coast. They are a great and simple way to slow down traffic, make the road safer and engage neighbours in a creative process to beautify the community and build stronger connections. Love it!
