Sister Cities Mural Launch

Posted on July 20, 2017

The STEPS Initiative is thrilled to be animating one of Toronto’s busiest connections to the waterfront as part of an international cultural exchange between the City of Toronto and the City of Chicago, (sister cities since 1991) as part of the StreetARToronto Partnership Program.

Chicago artist, Justus Roe, his local Public Art Assistants, as well as members of the Parkdale – High Park community have been hard at work transforming the Roncesvalles Pedestrian Bridge to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday and the “Year of Public Art” taking place in Chicago.

They look forward to celebrating the completion of this new work with you – and ask that you RSVP by Monday, July 24th for this community event if you wish to attend! Click here to RSVP.

Join them for “Building Bridges of Flavour”, a locally inspired menu of refreshments, along with local musicians, artist Justus Roe, and Mayor John Tory.

The venue is served by the Queen, King, and Roncesvalles Streetcars, as well as the Martin Goodman Trail. It is wheelchair accessible, with free on-site parking.
