Sheppard Avenue community murals to be unveiled
Councillor James Pasternak (Ward 10 York Centre) will be joined by local arts organizations and community members to officially unveil new public art works.

Date: Thursday, October 13
Time: 2 to 4 p.m. (remarks at 3 p.m.)
Location: 700 Sheppard Ave. W.

These murals are the result of Connecting Community through Vibrant Streets, an interdisciplinary project that engaged nearly 80 community members of all ages in a series of workshops collecting stories and images of memories and visions for the community.

The new art installations reflect the past, present and future of the North York area. The mural creation process was led by Toronto multi-disciplinary artist Beth Dawson.

This project was organized by the STEPS Initiative as part of the PATCH Project, an outdoor gallery exhibited on construction sites. More information is available at

These murals were created in partnership with the City of Toronto’s Cultural Hotspot initiative, which celebrates the arts, culture, events, food and communities thriving throughout the city.
