a love letter to the great lakes



June 20 - 25





For the first time ever, through the on-going efforts of a highly diverse and ever-expanding international team of artists, producers and change-makers, we’re thrilled to present a fresh water edition of PangeaSeed Foundation's Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans mandate in Toronto.

Celebrating the majesty of the Great Lakes through a dynamic festival of art, we sought to beautify our neighbourhoods, galvanize a community, and most importantly, stimulate a broader public awareness of the critical issues facing this breath-taking and unique natural resource, containing a staggering 95% of North America’s surface freshwater.

We can together give voice to this awe-inspiring resource and these critical issues to explore creative solutions in the minds and streets of Toronto.

SEA WALLS: Murals for Oceans

Sea Walls is PangeaSeed’s groundbreaking nomadic public art project that brings the oceans into the streets around the world. 

Collaborating with some of today’s most renowned contemporary artists Sea Walls creates large-scale public murals that address pressing environmental ocean issues by forging a synthesis between public art, nature, and society. 

They aim to engage with the local community to foster a sense of pride and ownership for the murals, and above all, for the health of our local marine ecosystems. 

The children of today will be inheriting the fresh water resource we leave behind. Inspiring and encouraging the next generation to become stewards for the lakes and seas represents a critical stage in the awareness raising process. 


Environmental pollution is an incurable disease. It can only be prevented.

A picture is worth far more than a thousand words. 

We believe that an explosion of creativity, art, and design can transcend cultural and linguistic boundaries, inspiring positive global change. 

PangeaSeed Foundation and the Love Letters team collaborate with today’s most influential creative minds to help give large bodies of water the voice they so desperately need.




Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man.
