Mural Routes, in partnership with artists Robin Hesse and Cristina Delago, is proud to present the Willowdale Mosaic Mural Project – a project created in 2022-2023, featuring 19 mosaic heart murals installed on planters on the West side of Yonge Street, between North York Boulevard (north) and Upper Madison Avenue (south). Each heart depicts a reason why the community loves Willowdale, which was determined by the local community who were engaged by the artists in the design process in a variety of ways. In Willowdale, the heart shape is considered an artistic and cultural symbol, and is deeply connected to its history. This mosaic mural aims to celebrate the area and contribute to the revival of the local economy which has suffered deeply due to the COVID pandemic.
Please join us on March 31st, where the artists, organizers and community members alike will be gathering at Yonge Café and Bistro, located at 5000 Yonge St – Unit #105 in North York from 4:30 – 6:30pm to celebrate the unveiling of this beautiful new addition of murals to the Willowdale community. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
This project is funded by the Government of Canada. Thank you to our project partners: the Willowdale BIA, North York Arts and StreetARToronto. We look forward to seeing you there.
