Media Advisory - Mayor David Miller to speak at launch of ‘Bell Urban Art Project’
Date: Tuesday, June 13
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Location: City Hall, Nathan Phillips Square (southwest corner)

Toronto will look a little prettier and a lot cooler this summer as Style in Progress affiliated graffiti artists create vibrant, one-of-a kind art displays on select Bell Outside Plant Interface (OPI) utility boxes across Toronto. The Bell Urban Art Project - the evolution of Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone’s (Ward 19 Trinity-Spadina) 2005 pilot program aimed at reducing vandalism and tagging - is now funded by Bell Canada with support from the Mayor David Miller’s ‘Clean and Beautiful City’ initiative.

Deputy Mayor Pantalone, as well as representatives from Bell Canada and Style in Progress, will join Mayor Miller when he announces the partnership at the south-west corner of Nathan Phillips Square (near the statue of Winston Churchill) on Tuesday, June 13 at 1:30 p.m. All will be available to answer questions.

Graffiti artist Cruz1 will also be on hand painting a one-of-a-kind Bell OPI utility box live for the media and public.
