MOUTH OF THE DON RIVER SITE
From June 20-25 nine artists will be painting on the pillars below the DVP / Gardiner Ramps at the mouth of the Don River and, the CN Rail Bridge at Don Landing. The river-side murals are inspired by the resilience of the Don River and explore the ecological challenges and opportunities faced in renewing our relationship to this urban watershed.

The Don River x Lake Ontario site is part of ‘A Love Letter to the Great Lakes.’ This is the first fresh-water edition of the internationally nomadic ‘Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans’, as created by the PangeaSeed Foundation. The project aims to celebrate the Great Lakes through art designed to beautify our neighbourhoods, galvanize community support and stimulate a broader public awareness of the critical issues facing the Great Lakes -- a source of 95% of North America’s surface freshwater.
