MOUTH OF THE DON RIVER SITE

OVERVIEW

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.

FESTIVAL BACKGROUND
 

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.
