Ossington laneway gets a mural makeover

August 19th, 2012 · No Comments

Despite the rain, roughly twenty artists came out to beautify the alley behind Ossington Avenue between Queen and Humbert streets. From Thursday Aug. 9 to Sunday Aug. 12, volunteers painted murals in the laneway, giving it a much-needed makeover.

The art-in-the-alley project is one of many  initiatives organized by the Well and Good creative collective. Their ongoing Brighten the Corners mural projects transform public spaces across Toronto. For this laneway, they partnered with the Academy of Lions, the City of Toronto and Toronto Police Services.

The full story will be out in the September issue of the Annex Gleaner.
